In Positano, Italy, at Franco Zeffirelli’s villa, 1980s.
It’s a board game, not a record (LP) Norm. Thought you were a “musical expert”?
Indeed, this is a children’s toy from the 1980s…
Carlos: ‘Lenny, if I give you this you will only end up throwing it out of your pram’
Lenny: ‘But Papa Franco said I could have it first!’
That image is too big. Please make it much smaller
LB: “I love you, Carlos baby, you are a smart boy that you found it, but now give me my whiskey back.”
CK: “Only if you guess who my real father is.”
Carlos Kleiber was not the son of Alban Berg. You’ve been reading too many gossip rags. Carlos was the living image of his sister, Veronica. Is she a Berg baby too? Arrant nonsense.
I told you Lenny that if I brought my game I’d refuse to take my clothes off!!
CK: ‘You always cry like a child when I am around so look what I brought you!’
Lenny: ‘Hey it’s Carlos Simon! What does it play? “We’re so vain”?!’
Kleiber: This is the only way I can understand Stravinsky and Messiaen.
Bernstein: Really ? Then I’d better have a go after you !
CK: Lenny, I brought you a little something to use around the villa.
LB: a children’s game?
CK: no man, a bigger scarf!!!
CK: Hey Lenny! There’s this twit named Norman Lebrecht who thinks this late 70’s electronic game is some sort of music album! Can you imagine?!
LB: I know, I know. He’s been a pain in my kiester for quite some time.
CK; We all know I’m more beautiful than you – and I can actually conduct.
LB: But Franco says I’m more beautiful.
