Notes & Reviews:

Joseph Martin Kraus was an innovative 18th Century composer, acclaimed by Haydn as one of the only two geniuses he knew (Mozart was the other). Small wonder that intense interest has been ignited by his forward-looking music, especially the epic six act opera (a prologue and five acts) 'Aeneas in Carthage', a retelling of the famous story of Dido and Aeneas. Originally intended for the inauguration of the new opera house in Stockholm, the premiere was delayed for ten years until 1791 allowing Kraus to refine his titanic score into a true magnum opus.

"This is an absolutely wonderful recording of some amazing 18th century incidental music. Joseph Martin Kraus' Aeneas in Carthage, which he worked on for about 10 years (due to production delays), must be a massive pieceThere's more than 69 minutes of music here, and we're not even talking about the singingGod only knows how long the whole work is, but the music here is top qualityThe performance here is as lively and vibrant as the music. Patrick Gallois has the Sinfonia Finlandia playing with excellent ensemble and plenty of characterFirst-rate engineering completes the picture. Don't miss this." - Classics Today (10/10)

"...there is some splendid and stirring music here, above all in the two Overtures and the magnificent extended closing Chaconne...Gallois evidently relishes the music's colour and charm, and elicits shapely, graceful phrasing from his Finnish players." -Gramophone Magazine
