Drawing heavily on their 15-year correspondence, this book is the first English-language biography of Carlos Kleiber ever written. Charles Barber offers unique insights into how Kleiber worked. This biography considers Kleiber's singular aesthetic, his playful and often erudite sense of humor, his reputation for perfectionism, his much-studied baton technique, and the famous concert and opera performances he conducted. It explores the great conductor's musical lineage and the contemporary contexts in which he worked, and it repudiates myths that inevitably crop up around genius and reflects on Kleiber's contribution to modern musical performance.Ia#39;m torn between your kind offer of Austrian candy or Swiss cheese and wonder if you would consider a hot dog at Sabrettea#39;s instead?4 Ia#39;ll be in NYC for your a Otelloa on March 5 and 9, and prefer mustard, no pickles, and hold the calories.
