Opera Composers

Carl Maria von Weber

Carl Maria von Weber

(1786–1826)

 

 

Weber founded German Romantic opera to challenge the dominance of Italian Bel Canto.

A master of orchestral colour and atmosphere, Weber was never well served by his librettists, and only one of his works, Der Freischütz, is performed regularly today. 

His influence on later German composers such as Wagner, was immense.
