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.
