Der Freischütz is Opera Now Choice!

"Marek Janowski keeps a firm hand on proceedings in the new Der Freischütz, where he contrasts buoyancy with atmosphere galore, using woodwind and brass to extract maximum effect from Weber's score."


''Der Freischütz" performed by Lise DavidsenAndreas SchagerSofia FominaAlan Held and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony conducted by Marek Janowski is Opera Now Choice for November 2019! Read a glimpse of the review below!


"The Wagnerian voices of the two leads are flatteringly recorded: Davidsen is a womanly, three-dimensional Agathe, her big dusky soprano still flexible enough to navigate the florid passages of her first aria, whilst the heroic writing for Max holds no terrors for Schager, a veteran Siegfried."
