Magnolia Thunderpussy

Clementi's influence on pianists has proved enduring, whether through his compositions, books of instruction, or the introduction of new levels of virtuosity on the pianoforte. This album explores a selection of works that have never been recorded, reflecting the variety of his imagination and invention. Mozart heard Clementi perform his Toccata in B flat major and grudgingly admired the Italian's technical prowess. The Capriccios trace a quarter century of development - the earlier pieces exude cantabile warmth and bravura, while those published in 1821 belong to the new world of Beethoven.
