Sergiu Celibidache: The triumphant return
From 1945 to 1952 Sergiu Celibidache successfully accompanied the Berliner Philharmoniker through a particularly turbulent period in post-war German history. But Berlin audiences then had to wait almost forty years before this magician of the baton returned to conduct the Berliner Philharmoniker again on 31 March 1992. The present documentary accompanies conductor and orchestra on their journey towards this memorable concert, which featured a performance of Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony. A fascinating record indeed!
