Format: Audio CD
I'm surprised while Hummel's two most famous piano concerti (the A minor and B minor, which Liszt played to astounded audiences at the age of 11) garnered such enthusiastic reponse from listeners enamoured with this great predecessor and in many ways, a direct inspiration of Liszt and Chopin, few ventured to lend their ears to his last and biggest (and in my opinion his greatest) piano concerto.

The A flat major (a key favoured by early Romantics like Dussek, Kalkbrenner and even Chopin) Piano Concerto has the concentration of Hummel's pianistic powers and wisdom that he had accumulated through the half decade of his life and it is perhaps the apogee and best example of a concerto that is clearly classical in its structure and texture but preciently romantic in its pianistic writing.

That, perhaps is the difference that marks Beethoven and Hummel, even so when detractors have chosen to ignore or are plain ignorant to unjustly and unfavorably compare them, to the effect of labelling Hummel as a second-rate Beethoven. Some failed to see that Hummel's significance to subsequent pianist-composers was just as important, or even more important than Beethoven - pianistically. While Beethoven had said what he needed to say with his 5 piano concerti - the last being the "Emperor" completed by 1810, Hummel continued to compose in this genre well towards the end of his life and his works constitute important testamants that chart the development of the musical form between the two decades that straddle the "Emperor" and say, Chopin's concerti.

I have owned this CD for several years and it has brought me more pleasure than I can remember.
It is absolutely enchanting: a master piece with very few equals. A perfect blend of classic and early romantic music: you will not be disappointed.

It belongs on the top shelf of any classical music lover!

Piano Concertino, which is also played on mandoline (as Mandoline Concerto in G-major) sounds beautifully on piano too. Howard Shelley's performance is simply marvellous. Even though the music of Hummel is not as popular as the one of his contemporaries nowadays and, what I find very sad, often forgotten to be played on the radio, buying this CD will give you the opportunity to listen to the wonderful "brillante" played by Mr. Shelley and his orchestra.

Excellent music for people, who love light, uncomplicated and entertaining classical music.

This is a fantastic recording of absolutely gorgeous music! Although I enjoy listening to Mozart and Beethoven piano concertos it is so refreshing to hear something else for a change and this is really something else to savor. Hummel in my estimation is easily the equal of the two aforementioned composers and I can listen endlessly to this marvelous recording and actually to ALL of his music. Do I need to say more?

Another CD that I play in my car on trips. I thought no-one could play as well as Stephen Hough but Howard Shelley gives him a good run for his money! Another lovely rendering of the complicated piano pieces.
