“For the musicologist, Franz Krommer’s works are interesting in many respects. They have not been sufficiently appreciated in historical terms until now.” This is what Heinrich Riehl wrote in a popular anthology in 1878.  Another writer pointed out that Krommer’s “work was so rich in original ideas, wit, [and] flamboyance, [with] surprising harmonic developments and striking modulations” that made it a veritable alternative to Haydn’s music.
