Kraus Symphony in C sharp minor, VB 140
Kabalevsky Violin Concerto op.48
Svendsen Romance for Violin and Orchestra
Mozart Symphony No.41 K551 C major “Jupiter”
Joseph Martin Kraus was dubbed the Swedish Mozart and spent most his professional life in the service of the Swedish court in the late eighteenth century. His volume of work includes symphonies and overtures as recorded by Naxos and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. This is an opportunity to hear both masters in one concert. Giora Schmidt returns with contrasting works for violin, the high-octane Violin Concerto by Kabalevsky and the soulful Romance by Norwegian composer, Johann Svendsen.
