“Weber's famous attention to details of orchestration is lovingly explored by a conductor who has taken the trouble to go back to the score in manuscript and observe the differences between that and most of the published versions [...] this would be of little point were the performance itself not of such interest [...] The singing cast is excellent, with Gundula Janowitz an outstanding Agathe to a somewhat reflective Max from Peter Schreier, [...] Edith Mathis is a pretty Aennchen, Theo Adam a fine, murky Caspar.” – Gramophone
