Notes & Reviews:

This is a recording of the final concert conducted by Erich Kleiber on January 26, 1956. He died one week later unexpectedly on the 200th anniversary of Mozart's birth. Friends of the great conductor had come from far and wide to attend the concert and be in attendance for the festivities surrounding the celebration of Mozart's birthday. The concert, as one can hear from this recording, was an unforgettable triumph.
