Format: DVD
By sheer coincidence, two video documentaries appeared a few years back from Europe about the conductor Carlos Kleiber. One was "Traces to Nowhere", and this, "Carlos Kleiber: I Am Lost to the World" is the other. This is the shorter of the two, by nearly a quarter hour, but of the two, it actually tries to probe deeper psychologically into the man. It also brings more to the fore the inherent tensions in the relationship between the father (Erich) and the son (Carlos), when one is the son of a great conductor, and himself expresses interest in becoming a conductor. Erich tried to dissuade Carlos at first, as is generally known, but after a period at university attempting to study chemistry (and also chasing girls, apparently), Carlos went back to his father to say that he still wanted to be a conductor. So things went from there.

The psychological probing from some of the interviewees brings up some questionable ideas, at least to me, such as regarding the possibility that the Kleiber parents may have had suicidal tendencies, and perhaps even acted on them at their respective ends, although the film explicitly does not state this as such. The interviewees kind of toss in the idea. The film even has an extreme possibility, if you strain to read between the lines, of this scenario with respect to the end of Carlos Kleiber's own life, not long after the death of his wife Stanka. In fact, the film notes the terrible coincidence of Carlos being diagnosed with cancer just around the time of the death of his wife.

Kleiber was a obsessive-compulsive, neurotic, likely bipolar fellow who made some beautiful music. Unfortunately, he made so little of it as a conductor though he was quite the showman and was very good at his trade. You can see the meticulous love he had for whatever he chose to conduct. He is fascinating to watch and those who loved &/or respected him have the most complimentary words to describe his work & life. This disc and the one entitled "Journey to Nowhere" are rather well done and very entertaining.

Fascinating until midway when the subtitles only last a few seconds. Unless you're fluent in German, this DVD is a waste of money.
