"Thematic interest, clever orchestration and powerful drama make the case that these works should be more widely known. This excellent recording will help in that regard. La Vecchia coaxes energetic and spirited performances from his orchestra, featuring particularly fine wind playing."
- The WholeNote

Muzio Clementi is considered the father of the pianoforte, a performer, teacher, publisher and manufacturer of pioneering importance. In addition to his works for piano, he also wrote a series of symphonies that can 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. Francesco La Vecchia, a conductor almost synonymous with Italian music, conducts the Rome Symphony Orchestra on this 2013 album.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
