Klemperer (14 May 1885 – 6 July 1973) was a German-born
conductor and composer. He is widely regarded as one of the
leading conductors of the 20th century.
Klemperer was born in Breslau, Silesia, then in Germany (now
Wrocław, Poland). Klemperer studied music first at the Hoch
Conservatory in Frankfurt, and later in Berlin under Hans
Pfitzner. In 1905 he met Gustav Mahler while conducting the
off-stage brass at a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 2,
'Resurrection'. The two men became friends, and Klemperer became
conductor at the German Opera in Prague in 1907 on Mahler's
recommendation. Mahler wrote a short testimonial, recommending
Klemperer, on a small card which Klemperer kept for the rest of
his life. Later, in 1910, Klemperer assisted Mahler in the
premiere of his Symphony No. 8, Symphony of a Thousand.

accident further paralyzed him, which resulted from his smoking
in bed and trying to douse the flames with a glass of whisky.
Through Klemperer's problems with his health, the tireless and
unwavering support and assistance of Klemperer's daughter Lotte
was crucial to his success. His son, Werner Klemperer, was an
actor and became known for his portrayal of Colonel Klink on the
US television show Hogan's Heroes. The diarist Victor
Klemperer was a cousin; so were Georg Klemperer and Felix
Klemperer, who were famous physicians.
