Fanfare, September 2014

This hour-long documentary…provides an invaluable amplification of our understanding of an enigmatic figure that many consider the greatest conductor of the 20th century.

This film…reveals a musician in the thrall of music that had great meaning to him and fully able to communicate his understanding and passion to the performing forces before him. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review

Audiophile Audition, May 2014

Kleiber seems a troubled soul, as this excellent documentary shows, one destined to burn quickly and with brilliance that almost feels too all-consuming in a musical world that demands so much conformity. He went his own way, not concerned about publicity, appearances, or in the end, his fans, as he left them so little. But they are fortunate that what he did leave behind fully lives up to the myth that he created about himself, and we are quite lucky to have shared his illuminations about the art of music, constricted though they turned out to be. © 2014 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
