[This publication] includes six fairly long duos, each with three movements in fast-slow -fast presentation....Hoffmeister no doubt wrote these duos to meet demand for challenging but not overly difficult music created by a large and advanced pool of flutists wishing to play for concert or salon performance....This attractive and well-edited volume is a welcome addition to chamber music of this era.--Flute Talk, January 2008

In score form; one score provided. Franz Anton Hoffmeister (born in Rottenburg am Neckar, 1754; died in Vienna, 1812) was one of the most prolific composers of flute music of his day. His works include 24 concertos for flute and orchestra, 7 concertos for 2 flutes and orchestra, approximately 40 sonatas and solos for flute and piano, approximately 130 works for 2 flutes, and nearly 70 compositions for flute and string trio--an unusually extensive range of works involving the flute. Although Hoffmeister himself did not perform as a flutist, he was certainly familiar with the capabilities of this exceptionally popular instrument.--Henner Eppel (editor).
