Beethoven, de Falla, Janacek & Bartok, all conducted by Klemperer at Concertgebouw 1951, CD

£5.99

Product description

What remains to be said, about Otto Klemperer ? He was one of the true masters of conducting ; up there, with von Karajan ... Solti ... Toscanini ... Beecham ... Strauss ... Stokowski ... the whole lot.

David Bird gave a talk on Klemperer, to the Redbridge Music Society, in 2010, and, among others, pointed out that the conductor :-
- was a man of immense intellectual honesty and humility ;
- always strove to be faithful to the score, and never interjected selfish conductor-interpretations ;
- had a wide taste in music, and championed modern music ;
- paid attention to the overall structure of the music, and tried to ensure that no aspect of the work, was obscured ;
- was an expert-interpreter of the German / Austrian "Greats" (J S Bach, Mozart , Beethoven , Bruckner , Mahler , Wagner , Haydn , Schubert , Schumann , Brahms , etc.).

These recordings, are of Otto Klemperer at the Concertgebouw, a much-celebrated music hall in Amsterdam ("concertgebouw" translates from Dutch, into English, as "concert building"). They were all recorded in January to April, 1951.
