Often called the Swedish Mozart, Joseph Martin Kraus (1756-1792can be considered the principle figure at the court of Gustav III of Sweden, whose idiosyncratic love for the theatre led to the creation of a unique cultural milieu. Kraus, born in Germany and trained by members of the Mannheim orchestra, was a member of the Sturm und Drang Hainbund and later achieved a considerable reputation for his music, conducting, and pedagogocal interests. This work contains an expanded thematic catalogue outlining the music of this composer, arranged systematically according to genre. Part I contains a series of essays giving a source-critical study, including issues of authenticity and chronology.Part II is devoted to the catalogue itself.
