Notes & Reviews:

Muzio Clementi's four surviving mature symphonies were never published in his lifetime and were rescued from neglect through painstaking reconstruction. His sophisticated use of counterpoint can be heard in his treatment of the tune God Save the King in the Third Symphony. Classical poise, drama and eloquence of expression in both works can be traced to the influence of Haydn and Mozart. Clementi's Symphonies Nos. 1 and 2 can be heard on Naxos 8.573071.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
The Third Symphony is known as the Great National for its pervasive use of the British anthem, presented in every way imaginable until the trombones stand proud at the close. To some 4 may seem more a rigorous exercise. It is a marvel, with a finale every bit as high-spirited as Haydn. It's a fine discmate for the Great National, as is the Overture in C (also rescued by Spada).
