UPDATE: an important discovery. Films of Carlos IN REHEARSAL for the 1992 New Years’ Day Concert with the Vienna Philharmonic.

These three are quite new, and very much worth seeing. They were likely made during the TV camera rehearsal for these live televised events. I have no idea about their provenance, nor have I seen even one frame before today. All thanks to whomever. 8:54 and 6:07 respectively, and more.

In time, all will come out. Meantime…

      There are two remarkable things about this rehearsal film of CK doing ‘Donner und Blitz’. 1) the parts were imperfect, and the becken [cymbal] player didn’t realize it. 2) contrary to gossip, CK did not scream/erupt/storm off the podium when confronted by defective parts. He simply solved the problem, and did so in very good spirits. As we can plainly see, Carlos had even the cymbal part memorized and — quite effectively — sang it aloud in order to fix it. There are a few gossips (posing as music journalists) who would have us believe that Carlos was crazy, and would flee at the first signs of trouble. Here is documentary film to the contrary. ALL THANKS to whomever found and posted it! A great service to fact.
