Live Concert: Piano Explored – Hummel
Hummel Piano Concerto No. 4 in E, Op. 110
London Mozart Players
Howard Shelley piano
Johann Nepomuk Hummel was one of the most talented pianist/composers of his day, and a musical ‘bridge’ between the Classical and Romantic eras. Hummel’s works are full of joie-de-vivre, their harmonic and lyrical variety showcasing his prodigious, virtuosic talent. If you are unfamiliar with Hummel, then the E major piano concerto is the perfect starting point, and Howard Shelley, a champion of this much-underrated composer, will bring all his consummate musicianship to the piece’s playful piano passagework. Take a lunch hour with the London Mozart Players and Howard Shelley to judge Hummel’s genius for yourself, you will be convinced.
