Weber, Overture to "Euryanthe"



Among the operas composed by Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826), only
"Der Freisch├╝tz" still enjoys unbroken popularity on the world's stages
today. Other operas, such as "Euryanthe," which he worked on for about two
years in the early 1820s, were popular in their day but did not establish
themselves in the repertoires of major opera houses. Although the opera
"Euryanthe" contains many musical gems, it is its overture that is most
often played today, a rousing work with gallant tunes, lyrical melodies and
even some early-Romantic ghost music. Leonard Bernstein conducts the
Vienna Philharmonic in this recording produced at the Grosser
Musikvereinssaal in Vienna in 1983.
