Franz Krommer was once a highly regarded composer, but he then ceased to be remembered and disappeared more completely than any other creative musician of his generation. It was not until 1997 that the Czech musicologist Karel Padrta compiled a thorough catalogue of his works including a biographical introduction. Krommerís oeuvre focuses almost exclusively on instrumental music. In his First Symphony he succeeds in forming a thoroughly individual synthesis of stylistic elements recalling Haydn and Mozart, while in his Second such work he largely distances himself from these models and develops a symphonic style all of his own.
