Franz Anton Hoffmeister was active in Vienna both as a composer and a publisher, becoming closely associated with Mozart and including works by Beethoven amongst his editions. The combination of violin and cello had its appeal for the amateur market, though Hoffmeister’s Duos op.6 include plenty of technical challenges. Conjecturally dated to Beethoven’s final years as a young man in Bonn, the three refreshing and inventive Duos for Clarinet and Bassoon have appeared in numerous arrangements.
