Notes & Reviews:

It is known that Kraus played keyboard instruments with a fair degree of proficiency, but his training was first and foremost as a violinist. His 'Violin Concerto in C major' is a monumental three-movement work that is similar in format, structure and length to large-scale virtuoso works by Cramer and Viotti. The incidental music for Johan Henrik Kellgren’s tragedy 'Olympie' consists of a powerful 'Sturm und Drang' overture, an off-stage march, four entr’actes and an epilogue. The final work included here represents virtually the only portions that have survived from Kraus’s early 1779 Swedish opera Azire.
