 really represents the title May 31, 2013 By christian bern See All My Reviews "How refreshing to hear this great music performed so cleanly and musically. Although the Schubert is obviously the centerpiece of this recording, the often overlooked Clementi will renew a lot of interest in his music. We all came to regard Clementi as a source for training works, but these renditions of his music will do much to restore him to the prominence so LONG OVERDUE and well deserved. At first I was skeptical of the title 'titans' -- how could these pianists live up to such a grandiose title -- well they did and they do! Congratulations." Report Abuse
