Karajan - Phenomenon Karajan
Karajan - Das Phänomen Karajan
In this portrait Uli Märkle, the Telemondial manager and long time Karajan companion, illustrates the cooperation with the Maestro, whose total dedication to music became next to proverbial. Uli Märkle also describes a humorous and in many questions interested contemporary with a liking for westerns and «Bratwürstel». The new found film cuts show Karajan with Nicolai Ghiaurov as Don Giovanni in Salzburg, Jess Thomas as Siegfried and Grace Bumbry as Carmen. But also rehearsals out of Telemondial concert productions, that were first presented at the inauguration of the Karajan Centrum, are integrated in this ORF production.
This Karajan portrait also includes interview clips that Heinz Fischer Karwin recorded with the famous conductor.
