Biography
The most important work that Bedrich Weber did as a musician was his works as a teacher. He was a primary mover in the establishment of the Prague Conservatory and in 1811 became its first director. Weber was also the director of the Prague Organ School and he wrote a number of important textbooks for theory. During his active career he met Mozart in Prague and the Abbe Vogler with whom he studied. He became the Mozart representative and advocate in Prague and, perhaps because of his enthrallment with Mozart his own compositions never left the eighteenth century. He did compose an extensive cantata, "Bohmens Erretung," for which Weber is best known. The music he set and arranged does at least make an attempt to explore new instruments, something for which Weber had a proclivity. He was unfortunately an antagonistic to the music of Beethoven and Carl Maria von Weber. However, he also showed great enthusiasm for the work of Wagner. ~ Keith Johnson, Rovi
