FINE CONDITION

Autographed complete RIAS (Radio in American Sector) Symphonie Orchester concert program from the February 15, 1952 concert. The legendary conductor has signed beneath his photograph inside the front cover, 1954. The program consists of 2 bi-fold leaves, 8 pages. We also offer the ticket from the performance and a 5 x 7 matte photograph of the younger Klemperer in rehearsal in the 1920s. Works by Hindemith and Beerthoven were performed.

The RIAS Symphonie Orchester, known today as the Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin is the broadcast orchestra for the city of Berlin. It was founded in 1946 by the American Army as a good will gesture to help bring some normalcy to a worn torn Germany. Ferenc Fricsay was the first Music Director. Klemperer (1885-1973), at that point one of the great conductors in the world, conducted and recorded with the orchestra from 1950-1958. This specific Klemperer concert was released on cd in the The Complete Klemperer RIAS 1950-1958 recordings set on the Audite label from the original masters.

Interestingly a fall later in 1951 forced Klemperer to conduct from a chair for the rest of his life.

Unusual and perfect for display!
