Notes & Reviews:

The repertoire featured on this disc is both unusual and rare; there are three world premiere recordings. Hummel's name is somewhat familiar today, but we forget just how popular this virtuoso pianist was in his lifetime. So impressed was Mozart by his talent that for a time he gave Hummel free tuition, room and board. With these performances by the excellent pianist Howard Shelley, Hummel's fine music is given readings that reveal the distinguished level of his art.
