Sharing Beauty Day 3

Carlos Kleiber conducting the Overture to Der Freischütz

 

I absolutely love this overture!

The opera itself it a little challenging for me because I find German opera to be a little bit philosophical for my taste. That being said, the message of forgiveness and support while also requiring responsibility from those who have made poor decisions is profound. We need more of this in the world.

I adore the drama that Kleiber brings to all of his interpretations! In this recording I am drawn through the mystery and terror of the darker moments in the opera and feel the ecstatic joy of the protagonist in finding forgiveness and hope. It’s quite the emotional rollercoaster in 10 minutes.
