About

A native of Rome, Muzio Clementi was ‘discovered’ by the wealthy Beckford family of Dorset in England, where the foundations for a distinguished international professional career as a composer and performer were laid. Clementi’s legacy to pianists was a significant one, introducing new virtuosity and exploring the possibilities of a recently developed instrument in an ever-changing society. The Op.1 Sonatas reflect the style of Haydn in the early 1770s, while the Op.10 and Op.12 Sonatas convey Clementi’s own dexterity as a pianist, including displays of his signature rapid thirds in both hands.

This well-filled collection of keyboard sonatas by Muzio Clementi joins a growing and eminently collectable list of acclaimed Naxos recordings of his sonatas by a variety of distinguished pianists, including a number recorded on fortepiano. Clementi has always been remembered by pianists, but his wider reputation as a skilled composer has seen a revival in recent years.

HyeJin Kim has been praised by critics for her ‘passionate…polished and expressive’ performances, and is one of South Korea’s most thrilling young classical stars. HyeJin has received numerous awards including prizes at the 2008 Hong Kong International Piano Competition, DAAD Prize, Steinway & Sons Advancement Award Competition and the Toronto International Piano Competition.
