A portal into Kleiber Magic March 5 2012
By A. Selan - Published on Amazon.com
This DVD is a treasure trove for all Kleiber and classical music fans. Inspiring stuff! It openly reveals the relationship nuances between the conductor and the orchestra, and the central part of the former within it. The tapes reveal worlds into how Kleiber transformed the musicians around him, including how difficult it probably was to satisfy his perfectionist and absolutely clearly defined musical visions. Kleiber's contagious enthusiasm, controlled impatience, eagerness to transmit his vision, unique humor, the musicians' dumbfounded face expressions, their gradual submission...the slow growth towards goal...it's all there...

Kleiber was himself music, that is clear from the outset. These sessions reveal openly Kleiber's love of music, his incredible imagination, sensitive personality and the painstakingly laborious process of fulfilling his musical vision. The videos are also quite motivational in the sense of projecting the harmony of dedication and love for one's profession. A vital item in any Kleiber collection.

Stimulating Insight Jan. 13 2013
By Robert Elden - Published on Amazon.com

What a treat to have this documentation of the great maestro at work. Kleiber's mastery and subtle coaxing of the musicians under his direction is nothing short of a conducting marvel to be cherished, admired and studied by students and laymen alike for years to come. Indeed, we are fortunate to have this artistic and historical record preserved for our future reference and enjoyment.

Conductor Of Genius April 21 2013
By Peter Swire - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This DVD is a very valuable addition for not only Kleiber devotees, but anyone who loves classical music. It's fortunate that these films exist of a brilliant conductor rehearsing Weber and Strauss overtures. He was very reluctant to communicate with the media, and it is rare luck that he allowed this film to be made. You have to see him in action to understand what extraordinary talent he had. He is the greatest conductor I have seen.

Family enthralled. Feb. 8 2014
By David Hatmaker - Published on Amazon.com

This was so interesting that non-musical elements of my family were enthralled by it. Kleiber was a great conductor and should be more widely recognized as such.

What is special about this DVD is that the viewer gets to see all the interaction of a rehearsal and then the stunning final product in the performance.
