Wonderful documentary on Carlos Kleiber

If you don't know the work of Carlos Kleiber, here's a fascinating documentary about him: Carlos Kleiber--Traces to Nowhere. You may want to see and hear further examples of his work as conductor after watching it! You can find a number of them on YouTube and some are on DVD: here, here, and here, for example. 

His father, Erich Kleiber, was a well-known conductor who led the premiere of Berg's Wozzek.

Best to watch on YouTube itself, not on these smaller videos--and it's high enough resolution to watch full screen on most computers (and see if you know what music ends the video!).
