Carl Maria von Weber

Weber’s vocal works: More than just Der Freischütz

Carl Maria von Weber, 6 Lieder und Gesänge, op. 66

Memorial Library of Music, MLM 1141

Carl Maria von Weber is remembered today primarily for his opera Der Freischütz, almost to the exclusion of all else. Yet Weber was, in fact, a prolific, and widely respected composer—even Chopin, a notoriously cantankerous critic of other composers, admired Weber’s work. His compositional output includes several symphonies, chamber music, piano music, and dozens of art songs. While a few of the examples of this latter category are still performed today, many of Weber’s songs are almost completely unknown to contemporary audiences.

The forty-one volumes of diaries cover the period between 1920 and 1960, describing Magario's time in the United States during the years 1920-1926 and his subsequent activities after returning to Japan.
