Strauss – Die Fledermaus by Carlos Kleiber/Bayerisches Staatsorchester
|Carlos Kleiber/Bayerisches Staatsorchester|
Carlos Kleiber’s account of “Die Fledermaus” from 1975 is a highlight of his discography. Inspired by a legendary and incredibly successful staging at Munich’s State Opera, where Kleiber conducted almost all (!) Fledermaus live performances until 1988, this studio recording in Munich’s Herkulessaal (a concert hall highly familiar to DG’s engineers) presents a lively stage atmosphere unlike any other recording.
