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
