Johann Nepomuk Hummel – Trumpet Concerto in Eb Major

Really nice coming together of a broad symphonic sound scape with the sharpness and accuracy of a solo trumpet. We can hear some delicate and complex interchanges between the flute and the soloist and the theme of this first movement stands out well making a memorable and listenable piece from the Austrian composer.

This sound is typical of the period and it’s a bit of a shame that this splendid musician was contemporaneous with the likes of Mozart. He really should get more exposure.

Listen to it here.
