The descriptive note comes from item 663 in :


Henderson, Alice H.
Henderson, Donald Gene
Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

A detailed analysis, for school use, of the overture to Peter Schmoll, written when Weber was fifteen. Concentrates on the cadences and the frequent use of a fermata followed by a pause before beginning new material. Diagrams the formal structure and gives a detailed description with musical examples of the harmony and instrumentation. Claims this overture is particularly suitable for use in musical classes for teaching formal analysis.
