Joseph Martin Kraus (1756-1792), also known as the Swedish Mozart, has for many years been a shadowy figure in music history. Gluck and even Joseph Haydn saw “a real genius” in his virtuosic works that carried the stamp of early Romanticism. They were not mistaken. His position as composer at the Swedish court under Gustav III made it possible to enjoy a fixed income and unfettered creativity. This collection gives us an overall musical impression of his compositions in all genres: from the incidental music to Amphitryon to the virtuosic Italian cantatas, his dozen symphonies, and the early string quartets.
