Product description

Otto Klemperer (18851973) was one ofthe most celebrated German conductor sof the 20th century, along with such eminent names as Bruno Walter, Erich Kleiber and Wilhelm Furtwängler. After leaving Germany in 1933 for the USA, he returned to Europe in 1946 and became music director of the Budapest Opera (194754). But it was not until he came to Cologne in 1954 that Klemperer started his ascendency to the pinnacle of his career which concluded with his great years as music director of thePhilharmonia Orchestra together with a large and distinguished discography. These WDR broadcasts have never been issued before. Klemperers debut with the KRSO took place on 8 February 1954 with Mozarts Symphony No. 29,a favourite of the conductor. Eigel Kruttge, a Cologne Radio producer who had been Klemperers assistant at the Cologne Opera in the 1920s, famously wrote in his diary on hearing Klemperers initial rehearsal From the first bars, the lions claws an apt description for this tall and imposing conductor. Following the success of Klemperers first concert, he was invited back in the same month to conduct Beethovens Symphony No. 1. On hearing the performance, Kruttge wrote Everything absolutely right in his diary. The broadcast of the Bach Suite No. 3, another favourite work of the conductor, followed in October 1955, almost a year after he recorded Bachs four Orchestral Suites with the Philharmonia. WDRs broadcasts of all these concerts are of very high technical quality.
