Otto Klemperer (1885 – 1973) was a German-born conductor and composer. He is widely regarded as one of the leading conductors of the 20th century.
He enhanced his reputation as a champion of new music, playing a number of new works, including Leoš Janacek’s From the House of the Dead, Arnold Schoenberg’s Erwartung, Igor Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex, and Paul Hindemith’s Cardillac.
In 1933, once the Nazi Party had reached power, Klemperer, who was Jewish, left Germany and moved to the United States. In the U.S. he was appointed Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.
Following the end of World War II, Klemperer returned to Continental Europe to work at the Budapest Opera (1947-1950).
