By Michael Brad Richman HALL OF FAME on February 16, 2004
This is a very good historical reissue from the folks at Dutton Labs UK. This title features the great conductor Erich Kleiber, father of Carlos, conducting Beethoven's 2nd & 6th Symphonies. The highlight of the disc is the Pastoral -- a 1948 recording with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. It is delightfully paced and full of explosive power in the "thunderstorm" movement, despite its mono-sound shortcomings. Unfortunately, the 1929 account of the 2nd with the Berlin Opera Orchestra is of even poorer sound quality, though it is wonderful to hear Kleiber with youthful vigor. Those curious about Erich Kleiber's considerable talents should first check out his Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 3 & 5 CD on Decca Legends, because of its better overall quality, but this Dutton title is a logical next step.

If I give this recording only four stars it is because it falls slightly short of Erich Kleiber's extraordinary recordings of the Beethoven Fifth, Sixth and Ninth, not to mention his Nozze and the Rosenkavalier.
Moreover, I cannot truly claim to write a dispassionate 'review' of Erich Kleiber's art of conducting. had the good fortune of being a young reporter in Buenos Aires when he 'reigned supreme', one can fairly say, from the podium of the Teatro Colon. He was one of two conductors regularly brought to lead the 'German season' (the other was Fritz Busch).

I subsequently heard him in Copenhagen (with the Danish Radio Orchestra and in Vienna (1950/1 ?). In Vienna I attended his recording sessions of "Nozze di Figaro" (Siepi, Hilde Gueden, Lisa della Casa--the same cast as Buenos Aires with the exception of the Bartolo. In Vienna it was Fernando Corena, whereas at the Colon the role fell to the inimitable basso buffo, Salvatore Baccaloni. Anticipating the eventually wide-spread use of the microphone to amplify the voice in certain large halls, Don Salvatore quipped: "You putta mosquito to a microphone and what do you have? Un altro Baccaloni".

I especially remember how Kleiber inspired the Colon Orchestra with his musical evocations--his rehearsals of the Beethoven 'Eroica', where the climax of the slow movement had him hectoring the orchestra to evoke Beethoven's 'dialogue with the Gods'. We then flew across the Andes where I heard him conduct the same concert program--Dvorak's Carnival overture, Beethoven's Third and Mozart's Symphony No. 33. Encore--a Viennese Waltz, of course.
