Carl Maria von Weber (1786 – 1826) (arr. Hummel) Overture to Euryanthe
Johann Nepomuk Hummel (1778 – 1837) Adagio, Variations and Rondo on a Russian Theme, Op 78
Carl Maria von Weber Trio in G minor, Op 63

The genius composer Hummel was a contemporary of Beethoven and Mozart. He enjoyed arranging large works for small groups to meet the market for amateur players. Here he arranges the Overture to Weber’s opera Euryanthe. Weber’s original brilliant orchestration is served surprisingly well in this arrangement, full of operatic character and tuneful.
Hummel was a great improviser and in this Russian folk song we get a glimpse of what he might have sounded like. Here he creates a series of wonderfully tuneful pieces, highlighting each instrument’s singing qualities.

The operatic master, Weber, completed this stunningly beautiful trio in 1819. In it we sense the Romantic era in the air. There is a preference for composing display pieces for soloists, like operatic divas singing their hearts out in this wonderfully varied, joyful and above all tuneful piece
