"Krommer was one of the most successful of the many influential Czech composers in Vienna at the turn of the 18th century. His creative output comprises over 300 works... Krommer’s reputation is attested by the rapid spread of his compositions in reprints and arrangements by German, Danish, French, English, Italian and American publishers... He was regarded (with Haydn) as the leading composer of string quartets, and as a serious rival of Beethoven... His modes of expression extend from the galant style of the earlier 18th century to Romanticism." Othmar Wessely in Grove Music Online. Item #25737
