It’s been worth the three-decade wait for this transfer of Kleiber’s cherished Rosenkavalier

We all know that Carlos Kleiber recordings are like gold dust. Whether or not one believes that the mystique surrounding this maestro is simply because he did so little, there’s no doubting that his Rosenkavalier was miraculous. With Claire Watson (more neurotic than his other recorded Marschallins) heading a marvellous cast, this is simply unmissable.
