Description: n authentic instrument successor to the only previous complete Clementi cycle (that huge box from Frequenz in 1989, later reissued singly on Arts), this new cycle begins with works conceived or written during Clementi's five-month stay in Vienna in 1781-2. The effects of the different action of Viennese fortepianos and different style of composition (Clementi had been in London previously) on these works are highlighted in the brief but quite useful notes by the pianist. 3 CDs. Costantino Mastroprimiano (fortepiano).
