(1766 - 1842)

The Bohemian composer Bedřich Diviš Weber met Mozart in Prague and studied with Abt Vogler, continuing to write in a style reflecting that of Mozart, his idol. He had, however, little sympathy for Carl Maria von Weber. He was the first director of the Prague Conservatory, from 1811 until his death.

Vocal and Instrumental Music

Weber showed interest in newly developing instruments but remained decidedly conservative in his style of composition. His varied works include a patriotic cantata, lighter music, an opera, chamber and piano music, and a set of variations for trumpet and orchestra.
