Description
"Erich Kleiber's peerless conducting of Weber's masterpiece over three decades became legend," writes The Metropolitan Opera Guide to Recorded Opera. The dark, mysterious forest of German Romanticism is the locus of Weber's 1821 opera, with its masterly orchestration bringing out the demonic and fantastic elements that lurk within it.

"This newly discovered production … was recorded in very fine sound by Cologne Radio in 1955. It's a very special reading…. Kleiber leads a performance that strikes the ideal medium between Classicism and folk heritage…. He leans toward quick tempos, particularly in the 'evil' scenes–indeed, there are moments when it seems as if Max Proebstl's Kaspar is going to have trouble singing so quickly and with such accuracy and venom, but he does. Agathe's two arias are ravishing in their inwardness, and Elisabeth Grummer, magnificent for Furtwängler, is even better here, creating a dreamy, sympathetic character…. Proebstl's Kaspar is not the usual 'black' bass sound, but he menaces with inflection and attention to the text. The 'Wolf's Glen' scene is spectacular–clean, clear, and spooky…. The recording is amazing for its vintage and the Cologne forces play with great style…. If you see this and you're without a recording of Freischütz, grab it."—Classics Today
