Hindemith: Nobilissima Visione - Suite (2000 Digital Remaster). Klemperer was so captivated by the Berthold Brecht/Kurt Weill Die Dreigroschenoper when it opened in Berlin in 1928 that he commissioned the 28-year-old composer to make a suite for wind instruments based on the original score. The result was the Kleine Dreigroschenmusik, which was played for the first time at the annual Berlin opera ball under Klemperer’s direction
Stravinsky: Symphony in Three Movements. Weill: Kleine Dreigroschenmusik, 1931, 1967. Klemperer conducted his own Symphony No 2 in a 1970 EMI recording (ASD 2575) that also included his seventh string quartet. A list of historical recordings of the Los Angeles Philharmonic with Klemperer conducting (including parts of the George Gershwin Memorial Concert at the Hollywood Bowl) can be found here: Otto Klemperer conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Kurt Weill's "Kleine Dreigoschenmusik" (1929) is a creator's recording. Klemperer commissioned Weill to arrange a suite for winds and percussion from his "Dreigoschenoper" (Three-Penny Opera) which had premiered the year before. This music is the heart and soul of Weimar Germany. It wears its decadence as a badge of honor. Klemperer's monolithic temperament is perfectly attuned to Stravinsky's Symphony in Three Movements. The Suite from Pulcinella makes its points heavy-handedly, but at least the conductor has a point of view. Missing from this collection is the 1967 New Philharmonia recording of Petrushka which Klemperer did not approve. It was issued on CD by Testament in 1999.
