The second of Krommer's concertos for two clarinets is musically more advanced than his first. The Concerto in E flat major, Op. 91, was written sometime around 1815, about the same period in which Weber wrote his clarinet works.

Krommer's Concerto for two clarinets in E flat, Op. 35, dates from just a decade after Mozart's Clarinet concerto, but in style and idiom, it could hardly be more different. The orchestration, particularly in the majestic opening movement (Allegro) is calculated to create maximum effect, and even if some of the effects come straight from the opera stage, the solo writing for the two clarinets is both entertaining and ingenious. Neither part is more difficult or exposed than the other, and for much of the time both players are heard in close dialogue.
