Karajan conducts Bach

Although Herbert von Karajan was a great admirer of Bach, his interpretations of the composer’s music were rarely recorded on video. Here we present two of these productions with the Third Brandenburg Concerto and the Orchestral Suite No. 2, which Karajan conducts from the harpsichord. The soloist in the Suite is Karlheinz Zöller, who was principal flautist with the Philharmoniker for many years. The recordings were made in Paris in 1967/68.
