Thanks, David and Chris.
Monica, looks like you're right about the opus number. All but one of the recordings of this on YouTube (5 or 6), call it opus 26 number 3, as does the score that I downloaded from IMSLP. (Ironically, even the score that they provide for "Opus 25 Number 6" calls it opus 26 no 3 - which is probably where the misunderstanding originated.) But the professional recordings (e.g., Hyperion) agree that it is opus 25 no 6 and one expects them to have researched this thoroughly. I think I'm going to steer clear of Clementi for a while; once I get a piece of music that gives a catalog number it does not occur to me to find out what the real
catalog number is.
I'm sorry about the titles. I made the grievous error of using, as a template, my own recordings as I saved them on my PC
, instead of as they were stored on the site
. Of course, this is a good way to perpetuate errors and I'll correct them by downloading this sonata and using it in the future.
As for tempi,
, that's about as fast as I can do these without flubs, and I did many
takes of these before getting ones that I liked. If it was live, I might try to perk it up a little; the pieces go by so fast I doubt the slip-ups would register with the audience.
