Overview

Even among classical music historians, maestro Carlos Kleiber (1930-2004) remains an elusive and enigmatic individual. This was a deliberate choice: Kleiber made it a point to exist and work outside of the public eye, adhering to the old Chinese adage "as far as possible you should leave no traces behind in life." This biographical documentary examines Kleiber's final years, courtesy of candid interviews with friends, family and colleagues including Plácido Domingo, Otto Schenk, Manfred Honeck, and the only filmed interview with Kleiber's sister, Veronica. In the process, an image emerges of a deeply troubled, difficult artist who was nevertheless unspeakably brilliant.
