Description: Following up on the complete sonata series, Shelley now gives us another well-filled set of music from all Clementi's career, from the early Black Joke variations of 1777, which proved to be an important calling card for his English career, to the late, Op. 47 Capricci (1827), radically experimental, determinedly chromatic, on the cutting edge of piano composition. 2 CDs for the price of 1. Howard Shelley (piano).
