Austrian pianist and composer Johann Nepomuk Hummel was at the forefront of the transition to the Romantic era in the early 19th Century. This concerto is harmonically complex and full of emotional expression. The writing for the piano in this piece is remarkably intricate but never overwhelming, even during the most fleet-fingered runs. Hummel's considerable importance in the progression of Western Classical music makes his Concerto For Piano And Orchestra In A Minor a must-listen.
