Franz Krommer (1759-1831)

Bruno Meier, flute
Stamitz Quartet Prague

The style of the Moravian composer's about 300 compositions exhibits the influence of Mozart and Beethoven and favours various Czech folk-music forms. Firmly rooted in Viennese classical music, Krommer was at his best with his flute quintets which appeared throughout his career as a composer and were ahead of their time. Three quintets for the unusual combination of flute, violin, 2 violas and cello are presented here for the first time.
