Takako Nishizaki Records Kraus Violin Concerto with New Zealand Symphony

From September 4-6 Takako Nishizaki recorded the Violin Concerto by Joseph Martin Kraus, the Swedish contemporary of Mozart, with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra conducted by Uwe Grodd. This is the first recording of the definitive edition of the work by the leading Kraus expert, Bertil van Boer, published by Artaria Editions, a subsidiary of Naxos. The Concerto will be coupled with two other works by Kraus, both world-premiere recordings, the ballet music from Azire and the incidental music to Olympie. Most of Azire has been lost and only the short ballet movements recorded together with the Violin Concerto have survived. Olympie is a work by Swedish playwright Kellgren which received its premiere in Stockholm in 1791. The Naxos CD will include the first-ever recording of the complete music for the play, consisting of the overture, several entr’actes and a postlude. The recording sessions took place at Wellington's Town Hall and were produced and engineered by Grammy award-winning English producer Tim Handley.
