I also have long sought out Klemperer's recordings in particular --
and also those of Szell, whose work in Mozart and Haydn in particular
complements Klemperer's, I think (and who at least appreciated GG's
musicianship, whatever he thought of his mentality).
To doubt everything or to believe everything
are two equally convenient solutions; both
dispense with the necessity of reflection.
