Karajan conducts the 1978 New Year’s Eve Concert

We normally think of Herbert von Karajan as an awe-inspiring maestro of the great Classical works. This festive, virtuoso New Year’s Eve Concert from 1978, which includes excerpts from Georges Bizet’s L’Arlésienne suites, Franz Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, plus music by Giuseppe Verdi, Hector Berlioz, Pietro Mascagni and Franz von Suppè, demonstrates his passion and precision in popular highlights, too.
