Otto Klemperer conducts Beethoven's 9th Symphony New Philharmonia Orchestra

About

Brilliant, Otto Klemperer in a piece that matches his artistry, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.

Otto Klemperer is not only a huge conductor because of his height (two metres ten!) but also, and above all, because of the importance of his contribution to the history of music. An essential link between the 19th and 20th centuries (he was born in 1885 and died in 1973), in 1907 he met Gustav Mahler to whom he owed his debut at the German Opera in Prague.
