Giv Cornfield
The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics, August 2008

Krommer is representative of the great Bohemian-Viennese school of composers that flourished between the classical and Romantic eras in music. The style is unmistakably Viennese: solidly crafted, melodic and colourful, with a predilection for fugal devices, as a nod to the baroque. The two works recorded here are from Krommer's maturity, while the six-movement Divertimento is a throwback to the baroque suite, with two minuets. Execution and recorded quality are top-drawer.
