Weber Return to List of Composers
Carl Maria von Weber was born in Germany in 1786. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1826. Vivaldi

Carl Maria Von Weber was a composer, conductor and pianist, born at Eutin, near Lubeck, Germany in 1786. His musical career was quite itinerant, all over Germany and Czechoslovakia, and he died in England whilst on a concert tour presenting his last opera "Oberon" in 1826. 

He was the main founder of the German Romantic opera, with Der Freischutz as his master-work. Like Mozart's Magic Flute, Der Freischutz  is a "Singspiel", in which the dialogue is spoken, not sung recitative as in the prevalent Italian style. It was enormously successful all over Europe, eclipsing Rossini's operas in courts all over the continent. Wagner's operas take up where von Weber's left off. He wrote two symphonies, and several operas, and much music for the piano, and also a great deal for the clarinet and piano. His most famous opera, Der Freischutz  - "The Free Shooter" is based on a romantic folk-like tale of  life in the countryside. His brilliant and famous works for clarinet include two clarinet concertos, the "Grand Duo Concertante" and his clarinet quintet. His most famous work for the piano is "Invitation to the Dance".
