Editorial Reviews

Howard Shelley's series of Clementi's Piano Sonatas has received the highest critical acclaim and reawakened interest in this important body of piano music. Today, the composer has been overshadowed by his great rivals; but, as this unique series has shown, the best of his sonatas can equal Mozart and Haydn and were clearly a huge influence on the young Beethoven. This sixth and final volume contains some of the most complex, virtuosic and large-scale works that Clementi wrote for the keyboard, written for performance in London concert halls, by the great pianists of the day, for a fashionable and discerning audience.

The last volume of Shelley's superb Clementi sonata series is here, and, despite a vanishingly few disappointments here and there, the completion of his series is cause for rejoicing. Shelley has made apparent Clementi's accomplishment in these works, through expressive virtuoso performances that reveal the Italian's unique contributions to idiomatic piano writing and the development of the classical and early romantic piano sonata. He does this without apology for Clementi's virtuoso athleticism--an aspect of his style very different from Haydn's and Mozart's. A great many composers have stood on Clementi's shoulders (among the first generation, Dussek, Hummel AND Beethoven), and their piano sonatas would have been greatly different without his trail blazing.

Now, in these last masterpieces, Clementi steps forth to assert his status as the elder statesman of the classical piano sonata, whose innovations the younger generation had quite rightly taken and run with. These include brilliant passages in octaves and other double notes contrasted with stark two-part writing; harmonic audacity; at times, a bluff and rough-hewn virility like nothing to be found in Haydn or Mozart; and--in these six late sonatas especially--a fascination with counterpoint--sometimes the writing is in as many FIVE parts.

For many years I have known opera 40 and 50 in recordings by Maria Tipo and Pietro Spada and found them both lacking. I knew there were greater expressive depths, sharper relief, and warmer passion in this music than these pianists presented. For the most part, Shelley gives us exactly that.

A case in point is the third movement of Op.40 No.1, the only one of Clementi's sonatas in four independent movements.

This is Volume 6 and the final installment in the Complete Sonatas of Clementi. As is true for the five volumes before this one, the playing and recorded sound is wonderful and brings full justice to this much neglected composer. Hyperion and Pianist Shelley deserve more than just five stars. They should all be golden ones.
