Two great 20th-century maestros rehearse the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra in opera overtures. Georg Solti, the Hungarian-born conductor famed for his intense interpretations of Romantic works, guides the musicians through a sharp presentation of Wagner’s Tannhäuser overture. The following year, the enigmatic Carlos Kleiber, who made only four U.S. appearances in his lifetime, is captured in rare footage interpreting Strauss’s lively Overture to Die Fledermaus, in which the eccentric conductor compares the strings’ dialogue to an impassioned parliamentary debate.
