Artist: Aldo Ciccolini
Title: Mozart, Clementi - Piano Sonatas & Fantasy
Genre: Classical
Label: © La Dolce Volta

Duration: 01:10:57
Recorded: Paris from 7 to 9 December 2011 (Église Réformée de l’Annonciation)


Clementi is now known mainly for his pedagogical works, but he is a major figure in the history of music for the piano, and was greatly admired by Beethoven for example.
Though Ciccolini has always held his Sonata Op.34 No. 2 close to his heart, he had never recorded it before. He has now - and how sumptuously! – grouping it with works by Mozart.
After a first and highly-praised recording devoted to Mozart (La Dolce Volta LDV 03), he has now tackled his Sonata KV 332 and the celebrated diptych comprising Fantasy in C Minor KV 475 and Sonata in C Minor KV 457. Through their expressive depths and their pre-romantic accents, these Mozart works fit nicely with Clementi’s amazing Sonata Op.34 No.2.
“One shouldn’t be impatient in life, certain things demand a gestation period. I’m not impatient to play something, I need the time to find myself”, says Aldo Ciccolini.

Rachel & I feel that, by using a fortepiano throughout, we present a sort of musical 'level playing field' with regard to our choice of Mozart's sonatas included on this disc - spanning as it does such a huge portion of the composer's life & musical development. While K.6 may at first appear to the listener as amiable juvenilia, sitting as it does alongside a sonata of such undoubted breadth & maturity as K.481, we firmly believe that allowing Mozart's early - and outstanding - ventures into this genre to speak for themselves by using using the same instruments throughout, we hope to draw attention to his early work in the best way - in a way that is not only so suggestive of what would in time follow, but also seeks to demonstrate the eight year old's already fecund imagination and uncanny sense of musical line. --Gary Cooper
