 Update me on new releases by Weyse

Christoph Ernst Friedrich Weyse (3/05/1774 - 10/08/1842)

Born in North Germany, Christoph Ernst Friedrich Weyse moved to Denmark in 1789, joining a group of German composers who lived and worked in Copenhagen. A conservative by nature, he continued there the Classical traditions of Vienna, from 1819 as court composer. In his later years he was the leading authority in Copenhagen’s musical life.

Orchestral Music

Weyse wrote his seven symphonies during the last years of the 18th century, the style of which they largely reflect.

Vocal Music

Weyse’s surviving reputation in Denmark is due, in the main, to his songs, works that establish a Romantic tradition there. His choral works include five cantatas for the major festivals of the Christian year.

Piano Music

Weyse enjoyed a reputation as a pianist and organist. Some of his music for piano makes significant technical demands on a performer and there were works that won high praise from Schumann, among others.
