Notes & Reviews:

Although hardly a household name today, Johann Nepomuk Hummel was a pupil of Mozart, and was considered in his time to be one of Europe's greatest composers and pianists. Like his teacher, he was also a child prodigy, and he so impressed Mozart that the composer began to teach him free of charge. These piano trios were composed in the late 1700s, a time of Revolution and the Napoleonic wars, with great upheaval reverberating throughout the continent. This upheaval is clear to see in the experimentation in Hummel's music; he started to abandon the usual three-movement form for one with four movements, a remarkable feature more common of the orchestral symphony than chamber music at the time. Despite the apparent simplicity of Hummel's music, a closer listen reveals the tightly constructed complexity beneath: the Trio in E Op.83, for example, ironically marked 'innocente', starts in E major, only to move swiftly into the distant key of A flat. Hummel then leads the listener through some beautifully lyrical melodic writing, underpinned by unusual modulations and harmonic changes. The release features three young Italian performers, Alessandro Deljavan, Daniela Cammarano and Luca Magariello, who, despite their youth, all have established careers behind them. With Deljavan and Cammarano having studied in Milan, and Magariello in Turin, the three musicians have all worked variously as soloists and orchestral players both in Italy and abroad, counting several international prizes between them. They are delighted to be collaborating together for this project, being enthusiastic performers of Hummel's music and committed to bringing his extensive oeuvre to new audiences. Other information: Recorded in 2013 at the Teatro Comunale in Atri, Italy. Performed on a Steinway piano from the Fabbrini collection in Pescara. Extensive notes on the composer.
