The Grand Concerto in F Major for Bassoon and Orchestra by Jan Nepomuk Hummel

James P. Aldworth acrylic on paper 1991

Hummel's Grand Concerto in F Major for Piano and Orchestra was relegated to a place of obscurity until the mid-1950's when Professor Himie Voxman noticed the work in a catalog of manuscripts in the British Museum. Professor Voxman ordered photocopies of the manuscript, and Ronald Tyree edited the manuscript as a part of his doctoral dissertation. The concerto was written between 1811 and 1816, when Hummel lived in Vienna.
