Beyond what you think Herbert von Karajan conducts, these 2 films were also directed by Karajan.

Commanding the podium with his slender figure, theatrical shock of hair and penetrating blue eyes, Herbert von Karajan projected the hieratic image of the conductor as officiant of some quasi-mystic rite. And anyone who ever saw him conduct live or on his many audiovisual recordings will agree that in his performances, music did indeed become a religion and Karajan its high-priest. Karajan (1908-1989) is the first conductor who seriously record live concerts, including the Beethoven Symphonies Cycle, even inviting famous movie directors to film them in the late 60’s and early 70’s.

Karajan embodied classical music in the general consciousness as an epoch-making conductor, media star, opera producer, festival director and festival founder. But in spite of his Promethean and widely varied activities, he remained a superb conductor, with a grasp of the standard orchestral and operatic repertory from Mozart to Schoenberg that was unsurpassed among his peers. These Symphonies No. 2 & 3 were recorded live at the Berlin Philharmonie in 1973.

卡拉揚超越了卡拉揚,除了指揮樂團演奏外,卡拉揚更親自操刀導演這兩個音樂會的攝制。

卡拉揚的指揮,與他的身型,頭髮和藍眼睛就像指揮台上掌管著樂團和音樂廳的祭司一樣。卡拉揚(1908-1989)是第一位全面把多個音樂會現場拍攝下來的指揮家,作品包括貝多芬第一至九交響曲系列,當年更邀請了多位著名的電影導演負責拍攝,對後世古典音樂現場拍攝工作影響深遠。儘管他是一個劃時代的創新性指揮,歌劇監製、明星,音樂節總監、及創始人,他更是是一個極好的音樂指揮,掌握的管弦樂和歌劇的曲目廣闊,從莫扎特到勳伯格,超越大部分其他的指揮家。這次布拉姆斯第二及第三交響曲於1973年在柏林愛樂音樂廳現場攝製。
