Producer’s Note
This biographical memoir illustrates how Otto Klemperer inspired musicians and music lovers not only with his conducting but also with his extraordinary courage, surviving extreme physical and mental adversity with remarkable stoicism. Dr Klemperer is heard speaking with John Freeman in the BBC Television series Face to Face, and he is remembered by former London Symphony Orchestra member Lionel Bentley, who recalls playing with him in 1929, former Philharmonia Orchestra members Hugh Bean, Gillian Eastwood, Martyn Jones, Gareth Morris and Basil Tschaikov, and singers John Dobson and Victor Godfrey, who performed with him at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. Also included are two never before released items that were discovered as this feature was being prepared: a speech by Dr Klemperer at a reception for his 75th birthday, and a rehearsal during his recording sessions for Mozart’s Don Giovanni. An entire hour of rehearsal can be heard on a bonus CD that appears with EMI Classics’ reissue of the complete opera.
