KRAUS: Complete Chamber Music with Keyboard

An almost exact contemporary of Mozart and similarly admired by Haydn, Germanborn Joseph Martin Kraus spent most of his short career in Stockholm at the court of Gustav III. Since the court’s musical taste inclined towards the theatre, Kraus had little opportunity to concentrate on chamber works, but he did produce several string quartets as well as these surviving sonatas for violin and keyboard.
