Paul Kletzki (1900-1973) was a Polish conductor and composer. He first joined
the Lodz Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of fifteen, and after serving in the
First World War, studied philosophy at the University of Warsaw. During the
1920s his compositions were championed by Toscanini and Furtwängler, who invited
Kletzki to conduct the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in 1925. In the second half
of the twentieth century, Kletzki was a renowned conductor, especially of
Mahler. In 1954 he was appointed chief conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic
Orchestra. Between 1958 and 1961, he was principal conductor of the Dallas
Symphony Orchestra, and from 1966 to 1970, he was the General Music Director of
the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. He made many recordings for EMI with the
Philharmonia Orchestra during the 1950s and 1960s.
Emmy Loose (1914-1987) was an Austrian operatic soprano of Czech birth,
particularly associated with soubrette roles.
Recorded April and July 1957, Kingsway Hall, London.
