Exhibition of the Johann Nepomuk Hummel Museum

The exhibition, dedicated to a significant Bratislava native, is located in a Renaissance house. It focuses on the life and work of the composer Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778–1837).

Johann Nepomuk Hummel is one the most significant composers of the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. He was born on 14 November 1778 in Bratislava and died on 17 October 1837 in Weimar. After moving to Vienna, he studied with well-known musicians such as J. G. Albrechtsberger, A. Salieri and J. Haydn. He worked as a composer, bandleader and teacher in the cities of Eisenstadt, Stuttgart and Weimar. Into his work titled Great Piano School he incorporated his progressive methods of piano pedagogy.

By means of copies of graphical lists and archive documents the exhibition presents Hummels’s ties with his home town and contacts with personalities of the European culture.
The most valuable exhibits include the piano and two spinets played by J. N. Hummel. The interior ambiance is completed with the composer’s writing desk, his death mask and a model of the monument for Weimar. The miniature of the monument done by the goldsmith M. Weinstabl was modeled according to Hummel’s 1887 monument by the sculptor Viktor Tilgner, located today in Hviezdoslavovo námestie (Hviezdoslav Square) in Bratislava.
