About the Author

Joseph E. Morgan is assistant professor of musicology at Middle Tennessee State University. He has also served on the faculties of the New England Conservatory, Brandeis University, and Boston University. He is the author of Carl Maria von Weber: Oberon and Cosmopolitanism in the Early German Romantic (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014)


This excellent book will be a very good resource for novice and experienced concertgoers interested in the life, career, and works of German composer Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826). Morgan, a Weber expert, intermingles biography and analyses of compositions, giving the works plenty of historical background and showing how they relate to Weber's personal development. Morgan also does a good job of explaining the librettos to Weber's operas. Though the book is accessible to the music novice, there is plenty here that will prove enlightening to listeners who already have a good background in music history. Readers will find the glossary of musical terms to be especially useful, and the list of recommended recordings will help steer audio enthusiasts to the better recordings of Weber's oeuvre. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty; general readers. * CHOICE *
