Title: Klavírne koncerty Johanna Nepomuka Hummela ako model pre Fryderyka Chopina
Author: Jordana Palovičová

Abstract: The article deals with J. N. Hummel’s piano concertos as a model for piano concertos by F. Chopin. The author familiarizes the reader with the misconception of Hummel’s music often seen as predominantly technical, stressing the melodic and expressive element of his Piano concerto
A minor op. 85. Furthermore it deals with some affinities in terms of stile brillante that can be traced in Chopin’s music. The article also points out several aspects of Hummel’s compositional style and texture serving as a possible inspiration for Chopin, e. g. accompaniment of the main theme, ornamentation, particular technical problems such as chromatic passages in unison or thirds, broken intervals, parallel scales, polyphony in one hand combining brilliant semiquavers with longer quavers, tremolos and glissandos, big leaps over more than one octave in left hand combined with virtuoso elements in right hand etc. On the basis of numerous examples the reader can easily compare the style and correlations between both composers.
