I don't know about the father/oedipal thing. He found his father dead in a bath in Zurich, bleeding (probably suicide) when Carlos was just 26. That would affect anybody for the rest of their lives. And there's also talk that his mother, Ruth Goodrich Kleiber, also committed suicide. Carlos was deeply troubled but his legacy cannot be disputed. I adored him.
