The World's Greatest Music
It's an institution that goes back almost 500 years. Today, Judith Weir is Master of the Queen's Music but who were her illustrious predecessors?
Christian Kramer (d.1834) was the first German to become Master of the King's Musick. He was appointed by George IV and led the King's personal orchestra which was acknowledged to be one of the best in Europe. Kramer was apparently on good terms with the King. According to one account, like George, Kramer suffered from gout and was often asked after by his master.
