5.0 out of 5 stars A key recording, 9 Dec 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Freischutz-Complete Opera (Audio CD)
This is one of the master recordings of Der Fresichutz. From the Overture to the finale, this performance sounds as fresh as the day it was made. It is one of the finest achievements in Opera recording and in my opinion the finest of this particular work. All round excellent singing from all the cast, masterful orchestra but the star has to be the conductor (Jochum) who interprets and guides the ensemble into creating this must have, key recording.

The CD set is complete with dialogue. The indexing is very helpful because the dialogue can be easily skipped if you just want to listen to the numbers. Packaged very nicely in a compact 2cd case which helps with storage on your CD shelf/rack.

I should also mention that this is the earlier of the two CD releases which are now circulating on Amazon. The newer one (2005) has a new "sleeve" artwork and not as nice as this older release in my opinion.
