Audio sample


After the critical and financial success of his arrangements of Mozart’s Six Grand Symphonies for Flute, Violin, Violoncello and Piano, Johann Nepomuk Hummel turned his attention to the symphonies of his great contemporary, Beethoven. Writing for the same forces, Hummel skilfully translates the power and complexity of Beethoven’s originals into a chamber idiom of dazzling virtuosity. Edited by Uwe Grodd, these fine editions also include a full critical report.
