 Francesco La Vecchia Conductor
 La Vecchia, Francesco

 Muzio Clementi was ‘The Father of the pianoforte’, a performer, teacher, publisher and manufacturer of pioneering importance. But in addition to the works for piano, he also wrote a series of symphonies which, along with Cherubini’s D major Symphony (Naxos 8.557908), are the only works by an Italian composer to stand comparison with the great Viennese symphonies of the time. Colourful, characterful and atmospheric, these important works show the influence of Haydn, but also, in their orchestral richness, of Beethoven and Schubert.

 "...Playing by Rome’s Orchestra Sinfonica under the leasership of Francesco la Vecchia is stylish and smart, and the recorded sound is bright and nively detailed. Though Clementi’s syphonies are not history-altering works, they’re expertly crafted and their many felicities are immensely enjoyable. Recommended."

Jerry Dubins - Fanfare - July/August 2013

 "...The current release presents a fine and lively recording of the first two symphonies... The Rome Symphony - something of a rarity in Europe as a privately funded orchestra - is doing a series of works for Naxos. Their performance here is outstanding. Good sound ..."

Ardella Crawford - American Record Guide - May/June 2013

"...this is a recommendable disc for lovers of the early-19th Century symphony."
Andrew Fawcett - Audiophilia - April 2013
