“The London Connection” – Beethoven, Clementi & Cramer

Dejan Lazić / Netherlands Chamber Orchestra / Gordan Nikolić

Beethoven’s transcription for piano of his violin concerto was made at the request of London based Muzio Clementi. Beethoven admired Clementi as a pianist and found his business as a publisher of use. Johann Baptiste Cramer was a composer and pianist also admired and respected by Beethoven and he settled in London . Both these composers played significant roles in the development of the piano, something Beethoven followed keenly. This fascinating album contains Beethoven’s Piano Concerto in D op61a, Clementi’s Piano Sonata in B minor op40/2, and Cramer’s Piano Sonata in E op62 ‘Le retour à Londres’.
