Otto Klemperer was very much a man of the theatre. "Here, opera and drama were truly united," he said of his time at Berlin's Kroll Theatre, a progressive and influential force in the heady years of the Weimar Republic. He was also a man with a sharp sense of humour: this performance of Mendelssohn's incidental music to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream both glows with enchantment and sparkles with wit. - Heather Harper soprano (A-4, B-6) Janet Baker alto (A-4) The Philharmonia Orchestra & Chorus Otto Klemperer conductor Recorded/Aufgenommen/Enregistré: 28-29.
