The Austrian conductor Carlos Kleiber (1930–2004) only released nine studio recordings over the course of his five-decade career.[1] He was famous for his elusiveness, often canceling concerts on short notice and appearing in only 96 orchestral concerts as well as about 620 opera performances.[2] Equally as hesitant with recordings, Kleiber stated that "every unproduced record is a good record",[3] and was described as not being able to "bear the thought of listeners sitting at home with a score in their hands… identifying every mistake".[4] His nine studio recordings are of four operas and five symphonies published by Deutsche Grammophon, as well as a single piano concerto with EMI. Each became critically acclaimed in its own right,[2] with those of Beethoven's 5th and 7th symphonies hailed as among the most outstanding classical music recordings ever made.[5][6] Following his abandonment of the studio in 1982,[3] Kleiber is represented by 75 live audio and 18 live video recordings, many of which are bootlegs; those of Der Rosenkavalier and the Vienna New Year's Concerts have been especially admired.[4] Kleiber's contributions in the studio and stage have secured his place as not only one of the most important 20th century conductors,[1][2] but as one of the greatest of all time.[7]

Kleiber's first two studio recordings were abandoned before completion: a 1975 recording of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 with Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli and a 1979 recording of Puccini's La bohème at La Scala.[8] His first success came in 1973 when he recorded Der Freischütz with Staatskapelle Dresden, followed by recordings with the Vienna Philharmonic (VPO) of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in 1975 and No. 7 in 1976. Both symphonies received much praise,[5][6] with one reviewer commenting on the former that "it was as if Homer had come back to recite the Iliad".[3] Around the mid-1970s Kleiber became closely associated with the Bavarian State Orchestra (BSO), and although they did not complete a recording of Berg's Wozzeck and Dvořák's Symphony No. 9,[9] they released acclaimed recordings of Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss in 1976 and Verdi's La traviata in 1977.[3] Also in 1977, he also released a recording of Dvořák's Piano Concerto with the BSO and the pianist Sviatoslav Richter, making this his first and only studio recording with a soloist.[10] Kleiber returned to the VPO in late 1978, and released recordings of Schubert's Symphony Nos. 3 and 8 the following year. He began recording both Brahms' Symphony No. 4 with the VPO and Tristan und Isolde with Staatskapelle Dresden in 1980.[11] While the former would be released in 1981, the latter would continue recording until April 1982 when Kleiber walked out for unknown reasons.[3][12] However, enough had been recorded to allow its release later that year; it was highly praised, particularly for the surprising but successful pick of the young Welsh soprano Margaret Price as Isolde.[10][13]

His earliest surviving recordings is a 1960 live performance with the NDR Symphony Orchestra of the Suite in B flat major by Georg Philipp Telemann and the Cello Concerto in B flat major by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach. As a whole, his recordings represent a limited repertoire;[13] many recordings of the same piece, including nine recordings of both Beethoven's 4th and 7th symphonies and Der Rosenkavalier; eight recordings of Tristan und Isolde; six recordings of La bohème; and five recordings of the overture from Der Freischütz. Deutsche Grammophon released two collections in 2010 and 2014 of Kleiber's recordings under their label. Two posthumous documentaries on Kleiber were also released in 2010 and 2011.

General
  1. ^ When the earliest release is not the official release, this is noted and the official is substituted.
  2. ^ For studio recordings, the first LP and CD releases are listed, for the live recordings the earliest release is listed.[a]
  3. ^ The We love Carlos Society (WLC 1-709) released a private recording of the Telemann in 1999 and the Cult of Classical Music (COCOM1014) in 2001 but Profil is the official release.[27]
  4. ^ a b c d No catalogue number exists for this release.[32]
  5. ^ Many earlier recordings exist, with Nuova Era (2224) in 1988 as the first; The 2014 Wiener Symphoniker edition (007) is the official release.
  6. ^ a b Year of release unknown
  7. ^ Orfeo incorrectly listed The Marschallin as Claire Watson.[39]
  8. ^ The orchestral arrangement by Wagner himself
  9. ^ Many earlier recordings exist, with Nuova Era (HR4410) in 1991 as the first; The 1996 Mediaphon edition (75.103) is the first official release, with the 2004 Hänssler edition (93.116) as the second.
  10. ^ No catalogue number exists for this release.[39]
  11. ^ Toru Hirasawa records 14 May 1977[39] while Barber 2013, p. 305 records 6 May 1977.
  12. ^ While listed as a recording from 5 April 1978, it is thought to be from a later date, either the 19, 23 or 26 April 1978.[44]
  13. ^ The date of a Legendary (LR162-2) release is uncertain so it may be earlier than the Recitative (115) release.[50]
  14. ^ The exact date is unknown.[32]
  15. ^ a b According to Barber: "The spring of 1986 was wholly occupied by concert music and in taking the Bavarian State Opera Orchestra on tour. ... Its repertoire consisted of Beethoven, Symphony No. 4 and No. 7; Brahms, Symphony No. 4; Butterworth, English Idyll No. 1; Schubert, Symphony No. 3; and Weber, Der Freischütz Overture. At the end of April the whole group flew to Japan. They gave the same programs, slightly re-ordered, in Tokyo (five times), ... On 19 May, at Hitomi Memorial Hall, ... two encores. Carlos and his orchestra toured Japan from 9 to 19 May that year, the only such tour they would undertake together."[55] (emphasis added). For the concert on 19 May 1986 in Hitomi Memorial Hall, see also Toru Hirasawa's page on Kleiber's concert agenda for May 1986.[56] When listing the recordings made on 19 May in Hitomi Memorial Hall, Barber, in Appendix B, pp. 309–314, mentions 1985 as year these recordings were made.[57] Toru Hirasawa's website has "May 19, 1986" on the page dedicated to recordings of the concert, which is the date followed in the current listing.[58]
