Composer of the Week: Johann Nepomuk Hummel

This week on ‘A Little Night Music’ Kathleen Kajioka takes a closer look at Johann Nepomuk Hummel.

This virtuoso pianist was the last of his generation, before the clean discipline and balance of the Classical era gave way to the tempestuous likes of Romantic Franz Liszt. A child prodigy, he was taken under Mozart’s wing and given free lessons for 2 years. When he flew the coup, he would wow audiences with improvisations, and with the virtuosic compositions he left behind.

Tune in to “A Little Night Music” every night this week, just after 8 o’clock.
