Weber : symphony n°1 & concertos


Virtuosity, brilliance, brio: the concertos of Karl Maria von Weber always arouse electrifying enthusiasm. But Weber was also a poet full of lyricism, an imaginative colorist, an innovator. This recording, performed by three great concert artists with crossed destinies and who travel the world's greatest concert halls (Nicolas Baldeyrou, David Guerrier and Thomas Bloch), pays tribute to the two faces of this key composer of Romanticism, who must be rediscovered.

1-4 Symphony n°1 in C major, op.19,
5-7 Concertino in E minor for horn and orchestra, op.45,
8-9 Adagio and rondo in F, for glass harmonica and orchestra
10-12 Concerto No. 2 in E flat major for clarinet and orchestra, op.74,
