Philharmoniker – Our history, Part 1: The early years

Contemporary witnesses of the Berliner Philharmoniker look back: on the history of their orchestra, on former chief conductors, on the development of musical performance. The first episode of this series, produced exclusively for the Digital Concert Hall, deals with the early years, the first recordings under the direction of Arthur Nikisch and, above all, Wilhelm Furtwängler. How did this conductor create his unique dramatic arcs? And what changed with the beginning of the Karajan era?
