 Revel in these magnificent Krommer marches and pa October 24, 2013 By Stephen Schoeman (Westfield, NJ) See All My Reviews "Franz Krommer at one time considered competition for Beethoven wrote outstanding marches and partitas as well as very fine clarinet music. I should know. I play the clarinet. His marches are not Sousa marches but there is more to the world of marches than the estimable Sousa! Here are gorgeous and melodic marches wonderfully arranged. A joy to hear! And much the same can be said of his partitas. Again here is evidence that a relatively unknown composer, whether it be Krommer or Stamitz or von Ditterdorf among many others, can give the world music of great enjoyment and of the most accomplished quality. We are so very fortunate to have ArkivMusic to help us in this exploration to find composers who though not known today or hardly known nevertheless demand our listening attention! And the irony is that many of them in their day were very well known and highly regarded. Sic gloria transit mundi but it need not be Sic gloria transit mundi! if we explore the vast outpouring of classical and operatic music to which they mightily contributed. Stephen Schoeman, Ph. D."
