Clementi: Sonatinas op. 36 & 4 (Piano Solo)
Clementi Sonatinas Op. 36 and 4, Edited by Kendall Taylor. The Sonatinas presented in this edition are first rate examples of that style of work which Beethoven admired, and for the student they give the opportunity to show beautiful singing tone, clear sparkling fingerwork, crisp rhythms, and to show by intelligent phrasing and considered relationships of phrases and sections how compositions constructed in the classical sonata form can be tastefully and effectively presented. In brief here are works full of interest for their own merits which also give complete musical and pianistic preparation for the study and appreciation of the works of the great masters.
