Description

Antoine (Anton) Kraft (1749-1820) was a cellist in Haydn’s Esterhazy orchestra from 1778-90 and Beethoven wrote his Triple Concerto for Kraft. The 3 Grand Duos, Opus 3 were probably first published in 1792. The first movement of No. 2 in F Major is in sonata form, while the slow second movement leads directly to the Rondo third movement and has a pseudo-cadenza for the cello. There are some challenging passages in treble clef for the cello throughout this duo.
