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. 3 in C Major is in sonata form with no slow introduction. The slow second movement is in the key of E major and the Rondo third movement features “sul G” for the violin, “ponticello” in the cello, etc. There are some challenging passages in treble clef for the cello throughout this duo.
