Notes & Reviews:

Trained by Mozart and Haydn, Johann Nepomuk Hummel enjoyed the highest reputation as a composer and virtuoso performer of his day. His piano trios are characterized by their richness of sonority, good humor and flowing melodic inventiveness. While the influence of Beethoven can be heard, Hummel's own creative voice is highly distinctive. The early Piano Trio, Op. 12 exudes the atmosphere of Vienna at the turn of the 19th c., and the Grand Trio is a concerto in all but name, the demands on the pianist expressly designed for its dedicatee Johann Baptist Cramer.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2015
If your musical tastes err towards the sunny, optimistic and playful rather than the heavyweight, gloomy and probing, let me direct you to the (seven) piano trios of Hummel...I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
