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.
