Folksong and Hunters' Chorus
(from "Der Freischuetz")
Carl Maria von Weber/arr. McAlister
- Ludwig-Masters Publications
"Der Freischuetz" has come to be considered the first of the Romantic operas. The influence of folk music is obvious, as is the composer's nationalistic fervor. Bright, melodic, and vibrant, it is as fresh today as when it was written!
