Hummel: Tanze fur den Apollo-Saal Nr. 4, Opus 39, Piano Solo
In 1811 with his Op. 39 Hummel composed another series of dances that he dedicated to the Apollosaal, the most fascinating amusement hall of Old Vienna, and a popular venue for the enlightened nobility just as for the emerging bourgeoisie. This series of dances surprises with several special effects. Hummel included a quote from the popular ballad opera The Swiss Family one vocal part and a large scale Coda envisioning the eruption of Vesuvius. These enjoyable musical miniatures offer an interesting glimpse into the creation history of the classical waltz and the world famous Viennese dance culture. They retain their charm as dance music to the present day.
