Musicians Remember Karajan

In this clip violin virtuoso Anne-Sophie Mutter, pianist Evgeny Kissin, and singers Christa Ludwig and Gundula Janowitz remember how Karajan pushed them in their art and to slow down and find expression in the music, even when the tempo he demanded was a technical impossibility for the performers. Also, see interviews with Karajan’s Daughters, Isabel Von Karajan and Arabel von Karajan, about the ways in which Karajan applied his rigorous conducting technique in other parts of his life and archival footage of Karajan conducting his orchestra.
