Romberg, Bernhard

Bernhard Romberg, also known as the "Hero of all Violoncellists, the King of All Virtuosos," was acclaimed as an outstanding virtuoso on the violoncello. Bernhard Romberg learned to play the cello from his father. He and his cousin joined their fathers on tours, and they visited Europe between the years 1784 and 1796, enjoying popularity. Their appearances at the Concert Spirituel in Paris, 1784 and 1785, were greeted with applause. Bernhard and Goethe were also members of the Bonn civic orchestra from 1790 until 1793 with the youth. Together, they developed a strong rapport and then performed with Da Ponte. After spending time in Spain in 1801, Bernhard traveled to France to teach at Paris Conservatory for a limited period. 

Romberg began his musical career in Berlin in 1805 and embarked on a lengthy concert tour, which landed him in London in 1814. Bernhard's popularity in the world of musical composition did not transform into success as an operatic conductor. He continued to follow his solo cello career into the 1830s. Bernhard's cello playing was made for a simple, gentle tone and was facile. His style of violin-playing gives more context to his approach to playing the violin. He wrote at least ten Symphonies, five operas, ten Violoncello concertos, and other chamber pieces. Romberg's "Trauer-Symphonie," opus 23, and the "Children's Symphony," opus 62, were very well-loved by contemporary viewers.
