He returned again to Vienna in 1795, before becoming Maestro di Capella this time for Duke Ignaz Fuchs in 1798. From 1813 (and from 1818, Kapellmeister, according to the HOASM biography) until his death in 1831, Krommer was the successor to Leopold Kozeluch in the position of court composer for the Imperial Court of Austria. His output was prolific, with at least three hundred published compositions in at least 110 opus numbers including at least five symphonies, seventy string quartets and many others for winds and strings, about fifteen string quintets, and much music for winds by themselves and with other instruments, for which he has perhaps become best-known.
