Notes & Reviews:

Although acclaimed as a conductor with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic and Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, the fact that Otto Klemperer composed quite a bit of music during the second half of his life is only little known. A strong advocate for modern music, Klemperer never forgot his Late-Romantic roots - Hans Pfitzner was his composition teacher, Gustav Mahler helped him to obtain his first conducting post.

BBC Music Magazine
Alun Francis directs very good performances indeed - his account of the Second Symphony compares well with Klemperer's own, issued many years ago by EMI.
