Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778-1837): Two Sonatas for Fortepiano: Sonata No. 5 in f sharp minor Op. 81 (1819); Sonata No. 6 in D major Op. 106 (1824); La Contemplazione Op. 107, No. 3 (c.1825). John Khouri, Six Octave Fortepiano by Jacob Pfister, Würzburg, c.1820. CD total time: 57:14. UPC# 017685-11032-0.
“With this disc, dedicated to the major sonatas by Johann Nepomuk Hummel, a great pianist and composer to the era, contemporanious with Beethoven, Schubert, Weber, Clementi etc, Khouri demonstrates yet again –and I presume he will again confirm himself with Cramer and the Chopin Etudes — to be an authentic virtuoso of the fortepiano. What more is there to say? Khouri has delighted us [and] he fully convinces us.”
