Richard Strauss

The fact that all of Kleiber's performances, far from routine repertoire renditions, justifiably remain in the audience's memory as moments of bliss, is proven by the recording of a 1973 festival performance: In his conducting, all the score's manifold elements are taken into account, from the tempestuous and dancelike passages to others in which the musical argument, meditative and melancholic by turns, comes to a virtual rest.
