Carlos Kleiber (1930 - 2004)

The son of the eminent conductor Erich Kleiber, Carlos Kleiber moved with his parents to Argentina in 1935, and attended schools there and in Chile. He was active musically from an early age, learning to play the timpani and the piano as well as composing and singing. Having begun his musical studies in Buenos Aires, during 1949 and 1950 he studied chemistry at the Technical High School in Zürich, before returning to Buenos Aires where he completed his musical education. Kleiber began his professional career as a répétiteur at the Gärtnerplatz Theatre in Munich in 1951, and made his conducting début at Potsdam in 1954 under the assumed name of Karl Keller. He continued to work as a coach, at the Vienna Volksoper and from 1956 at the Deutsche Oper am Rhein based in Düsseldorf, where he appeared as a conductor for the first time in 1958. Kleiber moved to the Zürich Opera in 1964, staying there until 1966 when he took up the position of first conductor at Stuttgart, a post he retained until 1968. Between 1968 and 1978 he held a guest-conducting contract at the Munich State Opera, and also returned from time to time to Stuttgart; during the latter part of this period he appeared with great distinction in many of the major music centres of the world.
