He may have been overshadowed by Wagner, but without Weber the history of opera would be very different. Weberís Der FreischŁtz, with its atmospheric Overture, is considered the first important German Romantic opera Ė and had a huge impact on Wagner himself. Brahms and Wagner were rivals, splitting the musical world with their different approaches to composition, yet few can now resist the sunny charm of the Violin Concerto by Brahms. With its lyrical opening movement, exquisite, singing Adagio and vigorous finale, the Concerto is an ideal showcase for the talents of ChloŽ Hanslip. DvorŠkís Eighth Symphony is one of his most joyous, full of Bohemian folk-tunes and orchestral colour.
