Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Weber’s Der Freischütz has not wanted for good recordings... Particularly distinguished (though murky sounding) is Wilhelm Furtwängler’s 1954 Salzburg Festival set..." -- Robert Levine, ClassicsToday.com

One of the essential recordings by Furtwängler according to the Société Wilhelm Furtwängler.
