Penguin Guide, January 2009

The American pianist, Susan Alexander-Max, gives magnetic performances of five sparkling and original early sonatas by Clementi, on what one hopes is the start of a series from Naxos. Even the earliest sonata, in G major, written when Clementi was only 16 and hitherto unpublished, develops striking material, and the two minor-key sonatas in particular point forward to Beethoven and beyond, exploiting the keyboard in adventurous ways with a wide dynamic range and bold harmonies.
