Just brilliant. Some of these I’d not seen before. So amazing to think that Kleiber was not the first one asked to do this concert. Kleiber agreed to do it when the originally-scheduled Bernstein was too ill to do it.
I have long loved these concerts, from seeing the original telecasts (which are heavily edited for the U.S., and then the CDs, which I think were among the first to be issued more or less complete. BUT there’s nothing like watching Kleiber draw the magic from the orchestra, so often just by standing there! Phenomenal and incomparable! Thanks for sharing, Young Tim.
