Conducted by Werner Ehrhardt.

Joseph Martin Kraus, also named as the Swedish Mozart, has been many years a shadowy existence in music history. Gluck and even Joseph Haydn saw a real genius in his virtuosic and nearly early-romantic works. His position as composer at the Swedish court under Gustav III made it possible to have a fixed income and a blithe creativity. This new release gives us an overall musical impression of his compositions in all genres: Beginning with the incidental music to Amphitryon, the high virtuosic Italian Cantatas, his Symphonies from different life periods, till the early String Quartets- it is clear that Gluck and Haydn were not mistaken in their assessment of his skill and prowess.
