5.0 out of 5 stars Carlos Kleiber : The Revelation of "A legend" 27 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Why a revelation, because I never had the opportunity of hearing him live and I do not know why. The only 2 works I have on CD with hime, are "Die Fledermaus" and "La Traviata".
It was by accident during browsing on you tube that I stumbled on a rehearsal of the Overture of "Die Fledermaus". The intensity with which he rehearsed this overture (in the style of Karajan : insisting on the color of the sound, the exactitude of the score, his interpretation on the piece) made me realise that this great conductor really escaped my attention.
So I went on discovery on you tube what was available on video with him : I stumbled on a few video's and I decided to buy this box : am I happy that I did !!! Why : his interpretations are really faboulous :
- both new years concert (vienna 1989 and 1992) are real pearls : great colour in the sound, and a vivid, fresh interpretation
- the Beethoven symphonies 4 and 7 with the "Concertgebouw Orkest Amsterdam" are played in a traditional way of playing Beethoven (not the new, latest Beethoven interpretations), but with such "finesse" : wonderfull
- the DVD with the bavarian state orchestra is also interesting, particulary the 4 symphony of Brahms.
- but the best is the DVD with the combination of Mozart's 36th symfony "Linzer" and Brahms' 2nd symphony, certainly my favorite : why : the Brahms symphony, due to his choice of the tempi (not slow, but really vivid) and his colours, but then the Mozart 36 : this was really THE revelation : tempi not to fast, exactly as it should be, the colours of the orchestra devine (with wounderfull pianissimo in the tutti) and masterfull phrasing of the musical lines ... . This interpretation of Mozart 36 is the uttermost interpretation for me, non other recording can match this interpretation

Carlos Kleiber(3 July 1930 - 13 July 2004) is a genius. If you have not seen him conduct you have missed a lot. His imagination is without limits. Just watch the Brahms Second Symphony with VPO. I was deeply moved by his music making. What a great artist. You get the two New Years concerts he conducted with the VPO as well. These you may find seperately and they have very positive reviews. He hated recording so we are lucky we know what an amazing artist he was through these 5 dvds. All these are recorded very well in my opinion. The sound is crisp, the playing impeccable and passionate. I hope my description helps

Kleiber is one of the rare conductors equally loved by orchestras and the public. The DVD's present a broad range of 19th century masterpieces.
