  • Now being released for the first time ever on DVD, these rehearsals and performances pay tribute to the legendary Herbert von Karajan

  • The Schumann film is the only visual record we have of Karajan rehearsing an entire work

  • Along with his role on the podium, Maestro Karajan was also responsible for the thrilling visual direction. These recordings from the mid sixties offer insight into Maestro Karajan’s role not only as a leading conductor but also as a pioneer in new media and filming techniques

  • This production set a new standard for the interpretation of Schumann’s No.4 and Beethoven’s No.5 by the Berliner Philharmoniker and Wiener Symphoniker and in terms of music filming in general

  • Karajan gives early evidence of his innovative approach to film by choosing Henri-Georges Clouzot as his director, a creator of classic “films noirs” such as “Quai des Orfèvres” and “Wages of Fear”
