Violinist and conductor Franz Cramer (1772-1848) was made Master of the Queens Musick in 1834 by King William IV and continued in the post until the year Queen Victoria ascended to the throne. Very little is known about his compositions; the only manuscript that has survived is a Capriccio for violin, kept in the British Museum.
