JOHANN NEPOMUK HUMMEL (1778-1837): Piano Trios, Vol. 2 - No. 1 in E Flat, Op. 12, No. 4 in G, Op. 65 and No. 5 in E, Op. 83 "Grand Trio Concertante".
Catalogue Number: 02Q033
Description: Although Hummel's seven trios cover the period from 1803 to 1822, they fundamentally never change their style, Mozart the model, glittering pianism to the fore and glimmers of Romanticism assimilated into an always Classical structure. The Fifth, from 1819 and written for Johann Baptist Cramer, is a concerto in all but name through its virtuosic demands and length (26 minutes here). Gould Piano Trio.
