Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
The finest of Hummel's Piano Concertos, dynamically projected by the young Stephen Hough.

Penguin Guide
The A minor is Hummel's most often-heard concerto, never better played, however, than by Stephen Hough on this prize-winning Chandos disc. The coda is quite stunning; it is not only his dazzling virtuosity that carries all before it but also the delicacy and refinement of colour he produces.
