  1. From Wikipedia I learned that Krommer’s “output was prolific, with at least three hundred published compositions in at least 110 opus numbers including at least 9 symphonies, seventy string quartets and many others for winds and strings, about fifteen string quintets and much sonorous, idiomatic and at times powerful music for wind ensemble, for which he is best known today.” I’d never heard of him before your post.

    1. The back side of my blog has indeed been taken over by demons. My notification bell at the top has also been filling with full posts….wordpress knows and has offered no solution. For now, I have retrieved all the lovely comments from spam. Thank you for letting me know, Olga. 🙂
