Herbert von Karajan: Maestro for the screen
Herbert von Karajan was not only a brilliant musician, but also a visionary in terms of his use of media to distribute his art. He was the first major conductor to recognise the enormous potential of television for classical music. This film by Georg Wübbolt traces how, step by step, Karajan made the medium his own and developed his own audiovisual aesthetic.
