Piano Explored: Hummel (Online Concert)

Piano Explored: Hummel (Online Concert)

Thursday, 22 April 2021, 1.05pm

Programme
Hummel Piano Concerto No.4 in E, Op.110

Artists
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.

‘Howard Shelley proves a supremely eloquent advocate of the composer, with his refined, shapely phrasing, crystalline textures’ BBC Music Magazine

This concert will be available to view until 22nd October 2021.
