Joseph Martin Kraus Collection
Joseph Martin Kraus (1756-1792) was German-born composer who was employed at king Gustav III's court. The Joseph Martin Kraus Collection was gifted to the Library by the Swedish diplomat and music lover Fredrik Samuel Silverstolpe (1769-1851), who himself had copied a large number of the Kraus' scores.
The collection also contains manuscripts written by the composer himself. It comprises approximately 100 works by Kraus, most of which are in score. There is no special catalogue, but the collection is incorporated in the general music catalogues. The content of the collection is described in the book below.
