The reputation of Johann Nepomuk Hummel—child prodigy, student of Mozart, successor of Haydn and Beethoven’s rival, widely-travelled piano virtuoso, composer, conductor, influential teacher and ingenious businessman—is once more on the rise. His variations, fantasies and potpourris on operas, including his own, were influential on Liszt and showcase his extraordinary abilities as both performer and composer. Winner of the Città di Stresa International Piano Competition, Madoka Inui has collaborated in literary-musical events with several distinguished authors and made a number of recordings for Naxos as accompanist in its Viennese series devoted to the art of solo instruments.


Review By Luca Segalla,Musica,November 2011


Review By Wilhelm Sinkovicz,Die Presse,September 2011

Johann Nepomuk Hummel war einer der originellsten Komponisten im Niemandsland zwischen Klassik und Romantik. Als Mozart-Schüler wusste er, was er der Formgebung schuldig war, als Kind seiner Ära schrieb er freilich auch programmatisch ausufernde Fantasien—die japanische Pianistin Madoka Inui hat einige davon vor zwei Jahren auf einer verdienstvollen CD der Vergessenheit entrissen. Nun präsentiert sie Hummel, der auch für die Entwicklung der pianistischen Technik bedeutsam war, als Schöpfer von Variationswerken über Opernthemen.
