Notes & Reviews:
Weber's popular opera Der Freischütz the version for wind ensemble was discovered in in the Altbrünn Augustinian Abbey Library.
Here the arranger the clarinetist Wenzel Sedlak turns to this fantastic opera. Drawing on his vast knowledge of the musical resources offered by the winds, Sedlak supplied a sophisticated arrangement to match Weber's orchestral artistry.
The energetic and popular approach for which the musicians of the Consortium Classicum are known comes with an applause guarantee. Breathtakingly virtuosic, then again marvelously intimate, or lyrical and expressive - in the opera the Consortium members are in their element.
