Weber: Der Freischutz / Böhm, Janowitz, Zednik, et al

Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Karl Böhm's Freischütz (1972) that has the natural ease of born kinship. His playing of the overture sets the tone with sounds that breathe the sunlit forests; the Wolf's Glen scene tilts these into the lurking horror that is the dark side of the opera's coin. . . Böhm handles everything beautifully, and unobtrusively, as if the work can be left to speak for itself, which of course is the art of real experience in the opera house. It is a most attractive performance. (The booklet excludes a text and translation.)
