Music by Conradin Kreutzer

Born: 22nd November 1780

Died: 14th December 1849

Birthplace: Messkirch in Baden, Germany

Conradin Kreutzer was a German composer and conductor. His works include the opera for which he is remembered, Das Nachtlager in Granada, and Der Verschwender, both produced in 1834. Kreutzer owes his fame almost exclusively to Das Nachtlager in Granada (1834), which kept the stage for half a century in spite of changes in musical taste. It was written in the style of Carl Maria von Weber, and is remarkable especially for its flow of genuine melody and depth of feeling.
