He wrote 8 quartets, each summarised in the book 'Nineteenth-Century Chamber Music', a tome edited by Stephen E. Hefling. (The descriptions are, incidentally, readable via Google books, pages 300-301 - see the link below.)
Hopefully the link works and someone might be able to find something. I think some of them are held in the library of the Liege(?) Conservatoire.
Kreutzer is described in the book as being one of the "two most aesthetically progressive musicians of the period", along with Edouard Lalo.
