A classic 1959 recording, impeccably conducted by Eugen Jochum and with several excellently characterised performances by leading German artists of the day.

Jochum's 1959 "Freischütz" has long been one of my favorites . . . The conductor has an unerring feel for the weight and color of the music and for the flow of the drama. His orchestra is excellent, and the chorus and supporting players sing with fervor and commitment, this music is in their bones.

Carlos Kleiber's Dresden recording caused quite a stir when it came out in 1973: rightly so, because it's performance of great vitality and subtlety. . . . When Kilian the peasant taunts Max the huntsman as a "M'sieu'", the mockery of the chorus, supported by spiky oboes, is exceptional vivid. . . . Kleiber is so good at bringing out the open strings of the stage band . . . Other orchestral delights include the clearly audible low flute and viola an Ännchen's second aria. And the singing is first-rate. Peter Schreier makes an unusually sympathetic Max, and Theo Adam a surprisingly heavyweight Kaspar. Gundula Janowitz brings a bell-like clarity to her arias, and Edith Mathis bubbles away as Ännchen. The duet, where Weber draws their characters so acutely, is charming. A noble Hermit from Franz Crass sets the seal on a riveting performance.
