Bravo for your website, surely a lasting tribute to HvK from whom I have learnt a great deal and then more about music.

I knew Karajan was the greatest conductor of 20th century while I was studying in college in 1980s. It was Bach's Magnificent he conducted stroke me that this piece was so beautiful, and I didn't get it although I listened to the piece conducted by others before. I would give him my personal regard for his interpretation, because the music experiences he gave me was unique, private and personal.

I'm just an ordinary amateur musician (euphonium) but obsessed with te maestro von Karajan.
By chance i found you website.
I've been searching for an autographed photo of him.
Maybe I can do something for you, because we all are remain fascinated by the Maestro Herbert von Karajan.
With the best wishes from the Netherlands; Hub Kaesler

So many have commented on the recordings of Herbert (Ibert) von Karajan, I have to say I do admire most but not all his recordings. A highly controversial figure who controlled his image closely (unlike the venerable and modest Gunter Wand)and he used the photographer Siegfried Lauterwasser! There is always something too perfect about the sound. Something missing. Listen to Wilhelm Furtwaengler 1953 Beethoven 9 on ICA! Or Bruno Walter 1955 Beethoven 9 on Orfeo. I would single out his last recording the Wiener Philharmoniker 1988 Bruckner 8 as quite superb. The 1960s Beethoven cycle I would prefer to his latter ones, however he omits repeats in the 5th. The Eroica & seventh being excellent. For the 5th listen to Carlos Kleiber, who Karajan remarked, only conducts when the fridge is empty! For opera his Bayreuth Tristan 1951 on Orfeo is interesting though the sound is rather distant ( he tried rearranging the Bayreuth orchestra up to the final rehearsal until he realised it would not work. Then there was that terrible row in Salzburg during a rehearsal. I prefer the Karl Bohm 1966 Bayreuth Tristan myself. If I had choose just one Karajan recording, I think I would pick his Richard Strauss Tod und Verklarung, in Strauss he was at his best.

An excellent site, dedicated to a truly great man. I have, thanks to the good taste of my Father, been aware of classical music since childhood, although I have absolutely no musical training or ability. I do recall my Dad pointing out that Herr von Karajan was "in a different class." Amen to that.

Admin reply: Thank you for your comments
