Muzio Clementi’s four surviving mature symphonies were never published in his lifetime and were rescued from neglect through painstaking reconstruction. His sophisticated use of counterpoint can be heard in his treatment of the tune God Save the King in the Third Symphony. Classical poise, drama and eloquence of expression in both works can be traced to the influence of Haydn and Mozart. Clementi’s Symphonies Nos 1 and 2 can be heard on Naxos 8.573071.

CLEMENTI, M.: Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4 / Overture in C Major (Rome Symphony Orchestra, La Vecchia)
Review By Salustio Alvarado,Ritmo,February 2014

Recordado, más bien para su desgracia, como el gran pedagogo clásico del piano, Muzio Clementi (1752–1832), fue además un prolífico compositor, no solo de música para teclado (en la que entrarían a saco Mozart o Beethoven, entre otros), sino de los más variados géneros, entre ellos el de la Sinfonía. De su etapa de madurez se conservan cuatro (WO 32–35), la cuales, a pesar de haber sido estrenadas y de que su autor dirigía una editorial, no fueron publicadas en su día y llegaron al siglo XX en forma manuscrita y fragmentaria, habiendo sido objeto de diversas reconstrucciones y ediciones críticas.

Review By Steven J Haller,American Record Guide,January 2014

…La Vecchia is very good, and the price is undeniably attractive… © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide



Review By Infodad.com,October 2013

The Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma under Francesco La Vecchia plays the symphonies and overture with straightforward skill, and the Naxos sound is quite good. All these works are reconstructions…Whatever their provenance, these pieces fit well into the time of their composition and into what is known of Clementi’s compositional style—and they are quite pleasant to hear… © 2013 Infodad.com Read complete review
