Herbert von Karajan conducting the Wiener Philharmoniker performing Anton
Bruckner Symphony No. 8.
Herbert von Karajan, Music Director of the Berlin Philharmonic from 1956 until
his death in 1989, is one of the pre-eminent musical figures of the century. He
conducted some of the most technically precise, luxurious-sounding recordings in
all of classical music. The films in the Karajan Legacy series document many of
these definitive performances, were directed by Karajan, and are among his only
digital recordings. The release of these films on DVD brings the superb artistry
of this man to fuller expression than ever before.
