Composer and music publisher in Vienna and Leipzig. Published numerous works of Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven.
Composed a lot of works himself. Apart from several operas, he wrote plenty of symphonies, string quartets, sonatas, and other chamber music compositions, and a number of concertos for flute, piano and other instruments.
Among the orhestral works there are also the Concertos for Clarinet in B flat major and F major, and the Concerto for Two Clarinets in E flat major.
Hoffmeister’s compositions stilistically belong to early Viennese classicism, closely related to Mozart.
