HUMMEL TRUMPET CONCERTO IN BB PDF

A piano prodigy, he studied for a time with Mozart—who thought highly of his talent—and then became a touring child performer who visited nearly as many European courts as Mozart had in his legendary youth. Hummel was one of the greatest pianists of his day, a brilliant improviser, and perhaps the finest piano pedagogue of the early 19th century, with a piano method still in use today. As a composer, his music sums up the aesthetic principles of late Classicism without attaining the heights of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven. While he wrote prolifically for his own instrument, Hummel is best known today for his only trumpet concerto, composed in for Anton Weidinger, the virtuoso of the newly invented keyed trumpet. At the end of the 18th century, the trumpet was undergoing a series of refinements to allow it to play all pitches, not just those in its natural harmonic series.

At the end of the 18th century, the trumpet was undergoing a series of refinements to allow it to play all pitches, not just those in its natural harmonic series.

First, keys — like those on a clarinet — were added to enable trumpeters to play a full chromatic scale. By , the more reliable system of valves we use today was introduced.

The lengthy sonata-form opening movement emphasizes brilliant fanfare writing, while the fast-tempo rondo finale revolves around a jaunty, off-to-the-races trumpet theme. Notes by Janet E. Bedell copyright
