I mean, no, he wasn't the glamour guy, but look. This guy GOT IT. EVERY COMPOSER. His Mozart WAS Mozart, his Beethoven WAS Beethoven, his Schubert WAS, his Brahms WAS, his Wagner WAS, his Strauss WAS.......and on and on. This man was truly a great conductor, imho. I have nothing by him where he misses the mark. nothing.
Bravo Maestro, Well Done.
and with Kleiber we have what? 2 Beethoven syms and a Brahms.
let's get real music fans.
and i think HvK's 60s 5th and 7th are just as good. and Kleiber's Brahms 4th is excellent, but there are others. his other sporadic efforts are ok. where's his Ring? Not to degrade Kleiber, but to put his work in proper perspective only. and thusly KB's.
but anyway, there you are KB.
