Herbert von karajan - wiener philharmoniker - don giovanni


Karajan spearheaded filmed recordings of his repertoire, first with Unitel and then his own production company, Telemondial, during the 1980s. These were planned and directed by Karajan himself and shot mainly in Berlin’s Philharmonie, an arts complex that he also helped mastermind. All of this took vast sums of money, accrued from the unprecedented fees that Karajan commanded not just for himself but for his players and singers. 

As I say, Karajan is masterful: the score is at his mercy to a demi-semi quaver. He led the Philharmonia to heights of tonal splendour, even as he led youthful Strauss to deeps of tear-stained religiosity – until I ached to rush out of the Festival Hall to hear somewhere a half-dozen bars of clear-eyed, well-bred, and fastidious Stravinsky.

The Herbert von Karajan® - Archive is the world's most comprehensive collection documenting the life and work of a conductor. Mostly digitalized, it is intended as an international focal point for research, and is aimed at professionals as well as interested Karajan enthusiasts.
