František Krommer was a Czech composer whose 71-year life span began half a year after the death of Handel and ended nearly four years after that of Beethoven.
His output was prolific, with at least 300 published compositions, including at least nine symphonies, 70 string quartets and many others for winds and strings, and much sonorous, idiomatic and, at times, powerful music for wind ensemble, for which he is best known today.
The soloists are new members of the orchestra.
