ON THIS DAY | German Violinist & Composer Rodolphe Kreutzer Died in 1831

He is best known today as the dedicatee of Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 9, even though he never performed the work, having declared it "unplayable" and "incomprehensible"

German violinist and composer Rodolphe Kreutzer died on this day in 1831, aged 65.

A student of Anton Stamitz, Kreutzer is remembered as one of the prominent violinists of the 18th and 19th centuries.

Kreutzer's major contributions to the violin repertoire include 19 concertos & 42 etudes and caprices.
