“With plenty of bucolic bite, Janowski’s orchestra conjures a real Brothers Grimm atmosphere in Weber’s dark fairy-tale.”
”Der Freischütz” performed by Lisa Davidsen, Andreas Schager, Sofia Fomina, Alan Held and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony conducted by Marek Janowski is Presto Classical Editor’s Choice for October 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.”
