My first conducting teacher at the hochschule was a man named
Lindermann, who was, if not technically close to Jean Morel, at least
an excellent musician. When Lindermann, who had a heart condition,
retired, Krauss took over his class.
Krauss was a "nice" man, more or less, who had had a successful career conducting opera, but was far from a luminary in the field. He was, as they say in Germany, a "Routiniere" (routine).
But he was nice and tolerant to me and allowed me to photograph him during class.
