LUIGI CHERUBINI (1760-1842): 6 Piano Sonatas.
Catalogue Number: 06N038
Label: Newton Classics
Description: These early sonatas (1780) once available on fortepiano by Pietro Spada on the defunct Europa Musica label in 1991 and again on modern piano on a German RCA never released in the U.S. in 2007, are remarkable pieces in which the fantasy and imagination of a talented young composer try to burst the bounds of the two-movement, moderately fast-rondo form which you know from Galuppi, early Clementi and many other early Classical composers, ultimately seeming to point ahead to Beethoven in their harmonies and pushing against convention. Francesco Giammarco (piano). Original 1990 Rivo Alto release.
