THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND, conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
NORMAN VENNER (Baritone)
THE plot of the Opera Euryanthe was made out of a thirteenth-century tale of knightly doings, full also of ghosts, fairies and such-like legendary folk. The work did not hold the stage; its libretto was too silly, even for those days. But the Overture found and retained a place on the concert platform. In it, Weber strikes the notes of chivalry and mystery. According to his characteristic plan, it contains fragments of the Opera's leading airs.
