Just up: Carlos Kleiber’s lost Beethoven 7thNews
An off-air recording has turned up of Carlos Kleiber conducting the London Symphony Orchestra at La Scala Milan in 1981.
This was Kleiber’s last encounter with a London orchestra. One bad review in (I think) the Guardian led to a boycott of London bands.
The recording is only partial.
Listen to it quickly before the LSO have it taken down.
Some of the phrasing and dynamics here are spectacular.
