I have reacquainted myself with Klemperer's traversal of the Beethoven symphonies recently, just the old well-known studio recordings with the Philharmonia. What a joy, the music is really allowed to breathe, phrasing is natural, slow but never elaborate, and accents are spot-on.
Any tips as to where in the world you'd travel to hear this type of music making live? Are there any hidden conductors out there that we need to know about?
I'm asking the question because I in my part of the world late became aware of a person like Georg Tintner who remained hidden from the limelight, conducting lesser known orchestras. Now, the Danish Sinfonietta for example have Adam Fischer, not a front rank band in terms of press but, to my ears, superior to many more prominent Beethoven or Mozart exponents out there.
Briefly, if your local orchestra, who is not of the front rank, retains the services of somebody worth listening to - let us know.
