 Classical Rarities February 16, 2017 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "Hummel was essentially Mozartian in style although his piano concertos have been described as proto-romantic. It is said that he influenced Chopin. These are, in any case, melodic works that are here performed in a manner that makes me think they could be more compelling with a little more of an exertive style by the conductor (a la Solti). There are not a lot of choices when it comes to these works so who knows? I find the Concerto no. 2 the most interesting." Report Abuse
