Famous in his day, the Austrian composer and pianist Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778–1837) studied with Mozart and befriended Beethoven.
Among his many works is a relatively late sonata for violoncello and piano composed in 1824 and published in 1826 – a delightful early Romantic piece in three movements supported by a capricious piano part.
The expressive cello cantilena in the “Romance” will capture the heart of every cellist.

Our edition, edited by Mark Kroll, is the first scholarly-critical publication of this sonata. It is based on the first edition of 1826 and the autograph manuscript, which served as a master copy for the engraving.
A comparison of the sources brought to light a number of details overlooked in the first edition, especially with regard to dynamics.

• A must for all cellists and lovers of chamber music
• Notes on performance practice in the Foreword (Ger/Eng)
• Detailed Critical Commentary (Eng)

Press reviews
Die jetzt vorliegende Neuausgabe von Mark Kroll stellt Hummels Komposition im Urtext wieder her. Er hat auch ein sehr gutes Vorwort verfasst, das nicht nur die Entstehung darstellt, sondern auch Hinweise zur Aufführungspraxis gibt. Die technische Herstellung ist auf anerkannt höchstem Niveau.“
