The Austrian Herbert von Karajan (Salzbourg 1908 – Anif 1989) still embodies the musical conductor like no other. In charge of the Berlin Philharmonic for 35 years (1955-1989), Karajan helped to elevate the orchestra to a level of global prestige. Throughout his career, he methodically diversified his repertoire: from Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner to Verdi, Wagner and Strauss…

He is a musician symbolic of the post-war German economic miracle. No one knew how to anticipate and interpret this crucial period better than Herbert von Karajan through his stature (which was carefully crafted and maintained with obsessive care from the end of the 50s), media coverage, and global diffusion of his records. Conducting and recording alone were not enough for Karajan. He aspired to be a sound engineer, director, filmmaker, and a creator of festivals and institutes. He appeared behind the wheel of sports cars and airplanes, and at the helm of sailboats, constantly displaying his fascination for technique. And yet, his lifestyle does not conceal his true calling: a brilliant musician who succeeded over decades in mastering the repertoire of the grand masters of classical music.
