Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778–1837) was a pupil of Mozart, a protégé of Haydn, a friendly rival of Beethoven, and renowned throughout Europe as one of the greatest pianists of his day, a sought-after teacher who instructed some of the most distinguished 19th-century virtuosi, the author of an influential treatise on the art of pianism, and himself the composer of over three hundred works covering all musical genres (apart from the symphony).
This 20CD Edition provides a cross-section of Hummel’s excellent, prolific and unjustly neglected output, with a large section of solo piano music including the complete sonatas and etudes and a rich selection of chamber music featuring violin, viola, cello, flute, and guitar with piano, as well as larger ensembles from piano trios to septets.
This Edition contains a generous selection of his works: the complete piano sonatas and other piano works, several piano concertos, violin concerto, bassoon concerto, trumpet concerto, mandolin concerto, violin/piano concerto, chamber music, masses, an oratorio and the opera Mathilde.
Played by leading musicians of our time: fortepianists Costantino Mastroprimiano and Alessandro Commellato, Solamente Naturali conducted by Hummel-specialist Didier Talpain, and many others.
