About

Otto Klemperer's reputation as one of the greatest conductors of the second half of the 20th-century was founded principally on his interpretations of the main orchestral repertoire, but his interests ranged more widely than that.

For many years, he was considered to be one of the greatest interpreters of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and on this very important CD we have gathered several of his little-known performances of Bach's music, especially including the Magnificat and the Fifth Brandenburg Concerto, with the legendary Annie Fischer as pianist.

In addition, we include two short pieces, an arrangement by Klemperer himself of one of the 'Anna Magdalena' Notebook miniatures, and the famous 'Air' from the Third Orchestral Suite.

This is a rare and most valuable collector’s item.
