Quote from: vers la flamme on May 16, 2023, 07:11:57 PMA lot of composers were also active as conductors of their own work, going back to the time of Lully, at least. Then there were composers who gained fame as a conductor-interpreter of other composers, in addition to their own works—Gustav Mahler and Pierre Boulez are the two examples that come most readily to mind. Then there were those whose conducting career completely overshadowed their compositions: Wilhelm Furtwängler, Bruno Walter, Otto Klemperer, and Giuseppe Sinopoli all come to mind as famous conductors who never achieved much recognition for their own compositions. Do you have any opinion on the compositions of these conductors I named, or any others? I'm asking because I've recently become interested in the symphonies of Wilhelm Furtwängler, especially the second, and the opera Lou Salomé by Sinopoli.
