Conversation, master class and performance: Karajan conducts Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5

In this film, director Henri-Georges Clouzot provides a fascinating insight into the working methods of Herbert von Karajan – including the secret of the legendary “Karajan sound”. We experience the conductor not only in a performance of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, but also in a master class in which he passes on his vast knowledge of rehearsal technique and musical interpretation.
