This series of short Composer Profiles with Music focuses on lesser-known names. Through a combination of words and audio examples, concisely presented, each reveals the life and work of yet another creative spirit in musical history.

Described by Haydn as one of only two musical geniuses he had met (the other was Mozart), Joseph Martin Kraus (1756–1792) is one of the finest and most original composers of the late-eighteenth century. The last ten years of his life were spent largely in Stockholm at the glittering court of Gustav III. Like his close contemporary Mozart, Kraus was a man of the theatre and among the finest works of his maturity are his operas and ballets.
This profile of Kraus comes with over an hour of music by the composer. Audio samples are contained in the text: just touch to play them while you read!
