Notes & Reviews:

Carl Maria von Weber composed a number of pioneering works for the operatic stage as well as incidental music whose highly attractive scores combine Classical principles of clarity with a unique lyricism and orchestral mastery that would inspire later Romantic composers. This disc presents overtures from his ever-popular 'Der Freischutz', 'Euryanthe' and 'Oberon', as well as from other undeservedly lesser-known operatic works, alongside concert pieces such as the 'Jubel-Ouverture' and 'Der Beherrscher der Geister', and the incidental music for the plays 'Preciosa' and 'Turandot', all of which amply display his vivid and refined dramatic imagination.
