Sergiu Celibidache (1912-1996) has been called a musical giant, a magician, a brilliant lion-tamer and an enfant terrible of classical music.
He was a legend in his own lifetime, mesmerizing orchestras audiences and critics with his intensity and brilliance.
Celibidache himself claimed that not a single French conductor was capable of conducting French music - a bold statement that makes this recording even more interesting.
This DVD shows most of what made Celibidache a legend in his own lifetime and offers todays viewer to participate in the musical wonders he produced.
This is a new release of the series of Metropolitan Munich programmes.
