Classical Music Playlist, April 29, 2022

The pianist and composer Johann Hummel (1778-1837) began as a child prodigy who was taught for two years by Mozart and later by Haydn, and later was still friends with Beethoven and Schubert and remained respected throughout his life. Socially, he established one of the first pension funds for musicians and performed benefit concerts to replenish its funding when it was low, and he advocated for the protection of music copyrights from piracy. From 1819, Hummel’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in B minor is the masterpiece of today’s noon at 2 p.m.
