PROGRAM

Sonata in E flat major, Op. 5, No. 3 by Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778-1837)

Virginia Allen, viola; Linda MacGougan, piano

Hungarian born Hummel, as an 8 year old, lived with Mozart and studied with him for 2 years. Over the subsequent years he was either a friend of, student of or teacher of Beethoven, Haydn, Czerny, Mendelssohn and many others. Later in life, his style of balanced classicism was overtaken by the fireworks of composers like Liszt.

PROGRAM

Trio Sonata in D Minor, H.569    Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788)
    Adagio
    Allegro
    Largo
    Vivace

For many years the Trio Sonata in D Minor, H. 569 was attributed to J.S. Bach but recent early music scholars have come to the conclusion that the piece was actually composed by his son, C.P.E. Bach. Since J.S. Bach taught his children, it is sometimes hard to differentiate who composed what piece.
