Berg Violin Concerto: Szigeti, Mitropoulos / 3 Scenes: Kleiber

I am pleased to be able to offer these incredible live performances. The Mitropoulos/Szigeti reading of the concerto from December 30, 1945, in particular, has long been my favorite recording of the work. But I confess that I adore both performers. And the Kleiber recording, which I listened to after a long time of not hearing anything from Wozzeck, makes me want to listen to the opera again. It's about as gorgeous as German expressionism gets.

  2. Excellent & remarkable post! I have been visiting various blogs for my Thesis writing help. I have found your blog to be quite useful. Keep updating your blog with valuable information... s�o paulo vidro automovel
