He arrived on the international music scene "like a meteor fallen from heaven." Today, more than 30 years after his death, his impact continues to be felt. First as revolutionary ground-breaker, later as champion of the classics from Bach to Mahler, Otto Klemperer amassed a recording legacy of masterworks perhaps unmatched by any other conductor, unequalled in their vision, depth, and power. Treasures from conducting's golden age, their enduring popularity is proof that the best never goes out of style.
