An extremely popular composer of his time, Giacomo Meyerbeer was considered an equal to Bach, Mozart and Beethoven

Known today in particular for his big operas such as Robert le Diable, Les Huguenots and Le Prophète, he also composed mélodies, Lieder and the musical dramaGli amori di Teolinda. A real rarity, the vocal composition and virtuous and strange marriage between soprano voice and… clarinet make this piece shine. Inspired by the talents of two of his friends (the clarinettist Heinrich Baermann and his companion, the singer Helen Harlas), Meyerbeer imagines with virtuosity a purely melodic romantic exchange. Teolinda the shepherdess is in love with Armidoro, who never appears. However, the clarinet, as panpipes, takes and amplifies the dream of love in seductive solos. Desire only increases, to reach peaks of virtuosity in the final flourishes which chaotically fill the scene.
