For us today, Wilhelm Furtwängler is a monument: immense and unapproachable. The documentary Furtwängler’s love from 2004 provides us with the opportunity to get to know the man behind the conductor. At the centre is his wife Elisabeth, who gives a vivid and thoughtful account of her years at Furtwängler’s side, full of charm and wit.
