dc.description.abstract This discussion of Carl Maria von Weber's life and music writing techniques is focused on one of his major works, "Concerto for Clarinet No. 1 op. 72." Throughout his travels, Weber discovered instrumentalists for whom he wrote music. He wanted to write the music in such a manner that 'when the intrumentalists played, the music would allow them to readily demonstrate their tonal and technical abilities. One of the ways to develop this type of music is through the use of musical flourishes or cadenzas. Through the years, however, the term cadenza has been often confused with that of the Eingang. The following paper discusses Weber's life as well as the difference in the two musical terms.This study of Weber and "Concerto No. 1 " will culminate on December 2, 1993, as I perform the clarinet solo during my Senior Honors Recital in Pruis Hall on Ball State University's campus.
