Franz Anton Hoffmeister was a formative figure in the musical life of his time and highly regarded as a publisher of famous contemporaries such as Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. The variety and appeal of his own works also made him a popular and renowned composer. As with volume 1 of this series (8572738), flautist Bruno Meier has created new editions of these previously unknown works. With elegant and catchy themes, substantial proportions, intriguing major/minor contrasts of key and virtuoso solo writing, Hoffmeister satisfied the tastes of his time finding a perfect balance between grace and artistry.

Bedenkt man, wie viele bedeutende Musiker allein zur Zeit der Wiener Klassik aus Böhmen stammten, so kann diese Landschaft mit vollem Recht Anspruch darauf erheben, eine "Wiege der Musik" genannt zu werden. Die CD vereint Flötenkonzerte dreier wichtiger böhmischer Komponisten, die von der Nachwelt nur allzu gerne zu "Kleinmeistern" im Schatten der drei großen Wiener Klassiker degradiert wurden. Zu Unrecht, wie die eingespielten Kompositionen beweisen.

Franz Krommer (alias Frantisek Kramár) was born in Moravia three years after Mozart and died in Vienna four years after Beethoven, setting him firmly within the Classical period. His substantial output included a good deal of orchestral and chamber music, as well as works for the piano and the Church. In his time, his string quartets were highly regarded, and he was considered by some as a rival to Beethoven. The modern age has tended to regard him as a petit maître whose music is fluent and skilful without being especially memorable.
