Description: These were the first complete recordings of Clementi's six symphonies, No. 1 in an edition by Alfredo Casella from 1938 and Nos. 2-4 in editions made by Pietro Spada in the late 1970s (they were previously thought too fragmentary to be reconstructed). You'll find much Beethoven and Haydn in these four while the earlier two are shorter (although still in four movements) and less dramatic. 3 CDs. Pietro Spada (piano), The Philharmonia; Francesco D'Avalos. Original 1993 ASV releases.
