Kraus: Symphony in C minor
Schubert: Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major
Kraus has often been referred to as “the Swedish Mozart”, and while a talented composer in his own right, is overshadowed in popular memory by his famous contemporary. His Symphony in C minor is stormy and dramatic, full of turbulent passion. Schubert was infatuated with Mozart, but in contrast to Kraus’s symphony, his Symphony No. 5 is light and joyfully elegant.
