Muzio Clementi was revered as ‘the father of the pianoforte’. He was a virtuoso, composer and teacher whose publishing and piano manufacturing made him hugely wealthy. Gradus ad Parnassum, in three volumes and completed by 1826, consists of 100 incredibly demanding exercises designed to lead to musical and technical perfection. It remains one of the great compendiums in musical history. Prizewinning pianist Alessandro Marangoni continues his critically acclaimed survey in this third of four volumes.

Review By José Luis Arévalo,Ritmo,April 2013

Aunque no se le pueda atribuir la paternidad del piano, no puede negarse a Clementi tanto su condición de innovador de la técnica pianistica, resultando interesante en este aspecto el conocimiento de algunas de las sonatas de la extensa colección que nos ha legado, como su labor pedagógica que tiene como mayor exponente la “Introducción al Arte de Tocar el Piano Forte”y los tres volúmenes Gradus ad Parnassum de la que se nos ofrecen los ns. 42 a 65. A diferencia de otras versiones accesibles en el mercado, donde para asombro de estudiantes se aborda le ejecución desde un punto de vista meramente virtuosístico con la frialdad que falsamente aconseja su intitulación de severos ejercicios
