The Life of J. N. Hummel, Analysis of op.94 Potpourri for Viola and Orchestra.

Viola gained its solo identity late, compared to other members of the violin family. Rococo style in the 18th century had a great effect on this. Viola gradually began to show itself thanks to composers such as Mozart and Haydn.
Hummel is one of the important composers who lived in the same period. This composer, who has produced many works throughout his career, is known especially for the works he created on themes from other composers’ works. His work called Potpourri, which was first published in 1822, was composed for viola and orchestra. Themes from the works of Mozart and Rossini were also used in this work. In this study Hummel’s life is discussed along with his work op.94 Potpourri and its later, shortened Fantaisie version.
