Notes & Reviews:
The film focuses on one specific facet of Herbert von Karajan’s artistic work: he was the first conductor who was obsessed with the filming of his musical performances in order to preserve a cultural heritage. Also as a film and TV director, he was an aesthete, a perfectionist, and a true pioneer. He once said: "Actually, I should have been born in a laterera." Television engineering was still in the fledgling stages when Karajan started. Still, his visual approach and rigid rules of how to film an orchestra and soloists - and of course how to present himself as a conductor - still today have an impact on everybody who produces recordings of concerts and opera for the screen.Notes & Reviews:
