Description: These works date from the late 1790s (the Op. 46 was published in 1820 but looks stylistically to be from the same period as the rest of the pieces here) and include one of Clementi's finest - the Op. 34/2 (which may have originally been a symphony), published in 1795, bears comparison with Beethoven's contemporary Op. 2 sonatas. All the sonatas were written either for advanced students or for Clementi's own use; the Sonatinas are for less-advanced students and have a small degree of progressive difficulty through the cycle. 2 CDs for the price of 1.
