Joseph Martin Kraus (1756–1792)
Review By BO69041,August 2014

This was a leap into the unknown for me. I had never heard of J.M. Kraus and this was the first FLAC recording I have purchased.

Mr. Kraus is tuneful and melodic and magnificently interpreted by David Carpenter and the Tapiola Sinfonietta. The FLAC seems to me to reproduce very faithfully, it comes however as one file without division into Concertos and movements and won't play on your old CD player.

Review By Jonathan Woolf, MusicWeb International,September 2012

The E flat major Concert…has good thematic development and crisply delineated passagework. The slow movement…is vested with the deepest and most individual features. In this case it’s an almost operatic richness of expression. Kraus also insinuates little harmonic feints and detours in his finales; he adds some crunching orchestral unison passages and some wistful slowings, to create a good sense of atmosphere.

The last concerto is a putative Double Concerto…it’s a very well orchestrated work with fully written out cadenzas. Once more the slow movement is strikingly dramatic, indeed arresting. The cello here decorates around the viola. The butterfly element is strong in this work, and it’s quite engagingly done.
