Navigation etc.

Includes sonatas 1-6 (Opp.2-106) and 7-9. (The last 3 are little-known - including to me - and posthumously published, but seem to be accepted as genuine - perhaps early - Hummel.)

Very early, sonatas 7-9 generally regarded as having been composed in the 1790s when the composer was in his teens. They've been recorded at least in 3-odd complete sets and no.9 once separately if I recall (though not in the best-known set by Ian Hobson.) Not aware if there is good evidence of authenticity, unfortunately. - ES
