Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new recording contains a fine selection of piano sonatas by Muzio Clementi, from both his early and mature years. The Sonatas Op. 2 and 7 clearly show the striking originality and pianistic innovations of Clementi, which feature octaves, runs in thirds and elaborate arpeggios. The music’s “Empfindsamkeit” is expressed in both dark and passionate moods and light-hearted vitality. Clementi’s pianistic style paved the way for the great 19th century virtuosos and still proves a serious challenge for the professional pianists today. Korean pianist Ilia Kim was educated in Berlin, the Salzburg Mozarteum, Hochschule Hannover and the Imola Piano school in Italy, where she settled in 1998. She is an active concert pianist, having played at Read more important festivals like Schleswig-Hollstein, Dubrovnik and the Tiroler Festspiele. Read less
