Following their recent reintroduction to the chamber music repertoire, the instrumental works by Conradin Kreutzer, composer of the opera Das Nachtlager in Granada (The Night Camp in Granada), are enjoying a well-earned renaissance; his sonatas, trios, quartets, quintets and the septet for winds and strings are as mellifluous as his rich Biedermeier/romantic vocal oeuvre. Kreutzer's preference for the clarinet is evident in most of his chamber music. Aside from his masterly clarinet quartet, one of the loveliest and most effective pieces is the Trio for 2 clarinets and viola (Amadeus BP 1019). The Piano Trio in E flat major op. 43, probably written during his years in Donaueschingen (between 1818 and 1822), also favours his instrument (Amadeus BP 1747). The present clarinet duo, particularly suitable as a recital piece for pupils, breathes charm and playful elegance. We present it according to the contemporary copies of the parts (13 pages each) kept by the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna under shelfmark WIII 2518 and titled: 'Duetto (à 2 Clarinetti) / composée et dediée / à Monsieur le Comte C: Kinischi / par Conradin Kreutzer'. Conradin Kreutzer, the son of the Talmühlen owner Baptist Kreutzer, was born on 22 November 1780 in Messkirch, the third of eleven children. Messkirch's choir master J. B. Rieger gave him his first music lessons. Aspiring to have him trained for the priesthood, his father sent him to the Zwiefalten Abbey seminary in 1789. During his ten years there he studied musical theory and learnt several instruments (clarinet, oboe, violin and organ). From 1799, at his father's request, he read law at Freiburg university; but upon the death of his father he devoted himself entirely to music, beginning with settings of dramatic texts. After some itinerant years, he settled in Vienna in 1804, earning a living from piano lessons and studying composition with Albrechtsberger. There followed concert tours in Germany, France and Holland. In 1811/12 his operas Feodora and Konradin von Schwaben met with great success in Stuttgart, and in 1812 he was appointed to succeed Franz Danzi as court Kapellmeister. He left this post in 1816. After 1818 we find him as Kapellmeister at the Donaueschingen court, from whence he toured extensively, before returning to Vienna. The resounding success there of his opera Libussa earned him the post of Kapellmeister at the Kärntnertor-Theater. In 1833 he was appointed to the Josephstädter Theater, where in 1834 he triumphed with 'Das Nachtlager in Granada'. In 1840 he undertook some concert tours with his eldest daughter, a gifted singer. From Cologne, where he worked as musical director from 1840 to 1842, he made further journeys to Frankfurt/Oder, Graz and Detmold with his younger daughter Marie, also a singer. He failed in his attempt to succeed Otto Nicolai at the Kärntnertor-Theater. In 1848 he accompanied Marie, who had an engagement there, to Riga, but she was unable to take it up. Kreutzer died on 14 December 1849, one day after suffering a stroke.
