About Muzio Clementi's Sonatas

Clementi wrote over a hundred sonatas and sonatinas, of which the one called Didone Abbandonata is the most popular.
Overshadowed by the contemporary works by Mozart and Beethoven, Clementi’s sonatas has not the access to concert platform that they might have deserved. Beethoven was in fact a great admirer of Clementi’s sonatas, while Mozart famously poured scorn over Clementi on a number of occasions, and begged his sister Nannerl not to play the sonatas with their wide stretches and heavy chords, which he thought might ruin the natural lightness of her hand.
