Heinrich Marschner (1796-1861) was one of the lesser German romantic composers of opera. He followed in the footsteps of Weber, whose music strongly influenced him. Marschner had a vivid imagination and was attracted to anything savouring of the uncanny and supernatural.
Hans Heiling is considered to be
Marschner's greatest opera. It is founded upon a sombre old legend, the story of which is typical of the fantastic romanticism of the period.
