Concert Piece for Piano and Orchestra in F minor; Op. 79 by : Carl Maria von Weber : Ernst Herttrich
There were two reasons behind Weber's hesitation to perform his opus 79; known as “Concert Piece” in public. As he wrote to the music journalist Friedrich Rochlitz; experience had shown that concertos in minor keys were not as well-received by the public. Furthermore he was worried that he would be misjudged as a “musical charlatan” because while composing it he had visions of a dramatic love story at the time of the crusades; which had influenced the character of the work. His concerns were superfluous; the effective virtuoso piece conquered the concert stages all over the world. It is now available for the first time as an Urtext edition. The world famous pianist Marc-André Hamelin provided the fingering.
