Group Description

Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778-1837)

Mozart's Pupil, Chopin's Mentor.

Welcome to the Johann Nepomuk Hummel forum! Here, we invite you to explore the fascinating music and life of an extraordinary composer, whose long-neglected works are finally enjoying a much deserved renaissance. Housemate and student of Mozart's during the last two years of Mozart's life, Hummel went on to enjoy fame and fortune as one of the best composer-pianists of his time. Haydn, Albrechsberger, Clementi, and Salieri were his teachers. Beethoven was his fellow student, friend, and rival. Chopin, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Schubert, and Schumann all numbered in the train of his admierers and spiritual hiers. And during his lifetime, Hummel was proclaimed immortal.

How could such a giant fall into oblivion for so long? That's a question we would also like to ask about Bach and Haydn.

Today, Hummel's music is coming back. Along with this renaissance, joy, vigor, and sanity return to music as well. The Johann Nepomuk Hummel Forum invites all music-lovers and Hummel-admierers to share their experiences, knowledge, opinions, and resources here with us. Let's spread happiness and joy, as Hummel once wished:

"Enjoy the world by giving joy to the world."

To the love of good music!

Hummel Hummel!
