Joseph Kreutzer is not listed in the standard reference works (including Eitner and Fétis). "Little is known about the life of Joseph Kreutzer. He was born in Aachen... From about 1805 he lived in Düsseldorf... Some sources refer to him as the concertmaster of the theater orchestra. Probably he taught the violin to Norbert Burgmüller... In Düsseldorf some of his works were performed, such as a flute concerto (now lost)... His pleasing if traditional works for guitar remain of interest and have been re-edited and recorded."
