Carlos Kleiber



Carlos Kleiber


Carlos Kleiber, the eccentric and reclusive conductor, has achieved cult status in music circles and has built a loyal fan base.

This film uncovers some of the mysteries and tries to clear up preconceptions of one of the most elusive conductors: what were the real reasons he cancelled that often? It sheds light on the relationships with his family, including his father and mother, traces the developments of his career and covers the ‘mythologizing’ that started during the lifetime of the maestro.

Carlos Kleiber has always been a major mystery to the world, and probably even to himself too. He disposed to close the door to his closest family circle for any biographers, and his children indeed respect his wish.

The film includes never seen before film footage, interviews with Ricardo Muti, Dr Otto Staindl, friend and attending physician of Carlos Kleiber, and members of the Wiener Philharmoniker and Berliner Philharmoniker. Many of them own letters or small notepads by Kleiber, documentary reproductions, photographs or private video copies of rehearsals and concerts.

In addition to this, his rare records are milestones and extracts of them are included in the film.
