By Dace Gisclard on April 14, 2009
Format: Audio CD
Shelley's Clementi series now comes to the sonatas written after 1784 (although a few earlier works are included, too--the series is not progressing by strict chronology). Clementi had just suffered the emotional devastation of an attempted elopement with a former student, thwarted by the quick pursuit of the young lady's wealthy father. One hates to lend credence to the tabloid-style misconception that a composer's personal life necessarily spills over into his compositions--usually, this isn't true. Nevertheless, there is a new feeling of deeper maturity in these sonatas, which may or may not have anything to do with recent events in the composer's life.

Clementi's trademark passages in double notes are still present, although not so frequent or extended. As Clementi scholar Leon Plantinga puts it in his notes, these works begin to feature "the thicker, saturated keyboard textures he began to favor at this time--the sort of sound that was to become standard for the pianists of Beethoven's generation and later." Also present is an even greater harmonic daring. There is also a new sensitivity and lyricism in the slow movements. It is as if the brash and callow Hercules of Op.2 has suffered anguish. Youthful prowess and virtuosity have been humanized through the wisdom and compassion brought by experience.

This is the first volume of Shelley's series in which he comes into direct comparison with Horowitz. Among other Clementi, the great Russian pianist recorded Op.13 No.6 (in F minor) and the finale of Op.24 No.2--both included in the present volume. Shelley does not suffer in the least by the comparison, although initially I was alarmed that the first movement of Op.13 No.6 is about two minutes longer than Horowitz's!

Clementi is the creator for modern concept about de piano sonata. He was a piano builder, contemporay another composers like John Field, Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. In 1787 in competition with Mozart in the imperial palace, the Emperor Josef said the competition was even bor both players.
This recordings series remembering about abother one.....with the great Vladimir Horowitz, RCA (1950-60).
This CD Volume 3 is great for several aspects, put technical development at antique form with elegance and mastery and added another cd in a series for 5 volumes, soon the next month.
Howard Selley is an outstanding performer, like a Rachmaninoff integrale, resolving problems with natural style and good taste, with musical simplicity notes like a Mozart Compositions.
Clongratulations Maestro Shelley!!!
This series is a hit for Hyperion.
