German family of musicians, principally wind players. The most important members were Heinrich (1784-1847), a clarinettist known throughout Europe for his velvety tone and expressive playing, which inspired Weber's clarinet works, and his son Carl (1810-85), a clarinettist and basset-horn player who was a professor in Munich and the author of a valuable method (1864-75).(c)Groves Dictionaries, MacMillan Publishers Limited, UK
