František Krommer (1759 - 1831) was a Czech composer of classical music, whose 71-year life span began half a year after the death of George Frideric Handel and ended nearly four years after that of Ludwig van Beethoven.

The two versions of Franz Krommer's name exist because, in common with many Bohemian composers of the time who found favor in Western countries, "Frantisek Vincenc Kramar" Germanized his name to Franz Vincenz Krommer. After a long stretch of dues-paying (mostly involving jobs in the wilder, eastern provinces of Hungary), he found favor in Vienna, around 1795, and became a favorite composer of Emperor Franz I, who named him court composer. By the time this concerto was written, he was widely famous in Europe and sometimes ranked with such geniuses as Mozart and Haydn; later, some would elevate him to a status similar to Beethoven's.

This concerto appeared in print in 1803. It is in the form of a standard Classical concerto, with a first movement that is long because it has a double exposition, one with orchestra only and the other featuring the soloist. Despite the form, there are ample anticipations of coming Romantic styles. These include a yearning second movement that begins with an astonishing pre-echo of Donizetti's bel canto operatic aria "Una furtiva lagrima."

The orchestra is relatively large, with a full standard woodwind section in twos, a pair of horns, and even brass and timpani, which were rare for wind concertos at the time. The opening Allegro movement is serious, with a mood similar to Mozart's Prague Symphony and a sense of the heroic. The Adagio movement is in song form, resembling an operatic aria of the time, and leads directly into a Rondo finale in moderately fast tempo. The proto-Romantic qualities of the music are most evident in the frequent and dramatic shifts to minor keys, which occur throughout.

The concerto is not a virtuoso work. Krommer's intent seemed to be to showcase the clarinet's strengths as a lyrical instrument, and the piece is indeed especially pretty. Even if Krommer no longer ranks with the giants of the Classical era, this concerto is nevertheless well worth hearing as a strong representative of the wind concerto in the age of Beethoven.
