Father and Son Conduct

Erich Kleiber was a very well known conductor in Germany and in Austria during the early 1900’s. What is amazing to me is that after he married and had a son, he told most inquirers that his son has absolutely no capabilities in music. For that matter, he insisted that his son get educated in a non-musical profession.

In the 1930’s the family left Europe and settled in South America.

That is how the son was named Carlos, and he became even more famous than his father was many years earlier.

This recording contains the following:
