Total Playing Time 1:32:53

The 1989 concert features Kleiber and the Viennese at their irresistible best, with the supersophisticated rhythms of "Die Fledermaus" Overture and amber-toned strings of "Blue Danube" among the highlights. The orchestra lilts, and Kleiber shapes and,
again, smiles -- with the ensemble and audience all smiles back.

The music swings and sways in terpsichorean ecstasy. Kleiber appears blissful as he inscribes elegant arcs with his baton, and the players beam.

. . . [Carlos Kleiber ist es gelungen,]gemeinsam mit den Wiener Philharmonikern vom Podium abzuheben . . . [man war] dem Himmel so nah -- und ist es auch heute noch beim Zusehen.
