Conductor Riccardo Muti rehearsing with the Philharmonia Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in 2007. // Clive Barda "This was taken during a rehearsal of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition with the Philharmonia and for me represents the quintessential Muti, here in matador mode! "
Sergiu Celibidache (1912–1996), was a Romanian conductor, composer, and teacher. Celibidache frequently refused to release his performances on commercial recordings during his lifetime claiming that a listener could not obtain a "transcendental experience" outside of the concert hall. Nonetheless, he earned international acclaim for celebrated interpretations of classical music repertoire. #leaders #celibidache #romania
