 Otto Klemperer Conductor
 Klemperer, Otto


Otto Klemperer was widely regarded as one of the leading conductors of the 20th century along with his compatriots, Wilhelm Furtwängler and Bruno Walter. These performances date from 1955, a period when Klemperer was at his most authoritative, spending a number of seasons guest conducting in Cologne with great success. Both Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream and Beethoven Symphony No.8 are sourced from the original WDR tapes and have been superbly remastered. 

 “Particularly impressive are the two innner movements [Beethoven], both unfolding with greater animation and wit than in the conductor’s bland, plodding trek through them in his studio effort.   In short, for anyone interested in Klemperer, this live performance is essential listening.”

“The opening radiant bars of the Overture [Mendelssohn] are very encouraging - it is notoriously difficult to get the wind chords together and in tune but here they are immaculate.   The orchestral playing throuhgout is sympathetic and above all delicate where necessary.”
