Among the operas composed by Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826), only Der Freischutz still enjoys unbroken popularity on the world's stages today. Other operas, such as Euryanthe, which he worked on for about two years in the early 1820s, were popular in their day but did not establish themselves in the repertoires of major opera houses. Although the opera Euryanthe contains many musical gems, it is its overture that is most often played today, a rousing work with gallant tunes, lyrical melodies and even some early Romantic ghost music. Leonard Bernstein conducts the Vienna Philharmonic in this recording produced at the Grosser Musikvereinssaal in Vienna in 1983.
