Karajan. The Master’s Style


di Vittoria Crespi Morbio


A conductor of legendary fame, Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989) left his unmistakable mark on an immense repertoire ranging from Bach to contemporary composers, but he also transformed the status of the conductor into an expression of power and glory. His elegance, the cult he made of his image, and his ability to embody and anticipate trends in the twentieth century made Karajan a unique symbol of style. La Scala in Milan and the Karajan Institute in Salzburg celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the birth of the Austrian Maestro by going back over the images of a stunning career, but also with an intimate diary of family photographs, with his travels, and with his love of boats, planes, and sports cars. What emerges is an original portrait of a multifaceted and complex man, who was at once unassuming and authoritative. A musical genius whose towering greatness was the result of iron discipline.Vittoria Crespi Morbio
