Freischütz Digital – Edition

The digital Edition of Der Freischütz in Edirom Online

The main focus of our work for Edirom Online has been processing the contents of a digital edition of the opera Der Freischütz; to support this project we have compiled relevant data and tools and prepared demos for visualizing essential aspects of its results.

The digital edition offers a survey of all this project’s data presented in different views, such as, for example, facsimiles, rendered data, metadata, and XML-views of the musical sources. Besides the musical sources, the edition contains all available libretti and reference texts in facsimile together with transcriptions, a selection of well-known recordings of Der Freischütz, a separate recording of the opera’s nos. 6, 8, and 9 by the Hochschule für Musik Detmold, and annotations for the work.

The following texts and sources appropriately introduce the edition (most of the texts are available only in German):
