Carl Maria von Weber 1786-1826

A radio portrait compiled from contemporary and other sources and written by JOANNA RICHARDSON

I will spin myself a cocoon, and humanity shall feel me only in my works... An unseen being. I will cradle myself in the thought of how to bring them happiness; I will quicken them with my own heart's 'blood, until the cords are broken (Weber, in a letter to his wife)
