 Nepomuk Fortepiano Quintet Ensemble


 Hummel, Onslow and Dussek are all contemporaries of Beethoven (1770 - 1827). All three were not only piano virtuosos, but composers as well.

 
It is not by chance that the name of the Nepomuk Fortepiano Quintet refers to the composer Hummel. The ensemble consists of piano, 2 violins, viola, cello and double bass. This unusual combination is similar to the one Schubert later used for his Trout Quintet. Since their foundation in 1999 the musicians specialize in performing such music on period instruments.
 
The three quintets on this album have a classical form and have a pleasant optimism in common. Extremely clear, sparkling and contagious performances by this Dutch ensemble. This is how this music should sound. A beautiful sonorous recording.
