Description: All these works were written just before a 1780-82 European tour, during which (end of Dec. 1781) he had his famous piano-playing contest with Mozart. Most of these works were performed by Clementi during his trip abroad and the Toccata is exactly the sort of thing whose fluency of execution won Mozart's praise but the music itself his execration. 2 CDs for the price of 1. Howard Shelley (piano).
