Seiji Ozawa: A Memorial Concert for Herbert Von Karajan – With Anne-Sophie Mutter
The Berliner Philharmoniker at the Wiener Musikverein
Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter performs with Seiji Ozawa, conducting the Berliner Philharmoniker for a Beethoven, Bach, and Tchaikovsky programme, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Herbert von Karajan's birth.
The concert was recorded in 2008 at the Wiener Musikverein to pay tribute to the Austrian conductor Herbert von Karajan, whose name is still inextricably tied in with the Berlin Philharmonic. The concert opens with the Beethoven Violin Concerto, followed by Bach’s Partita No. 2 for solo violin, and later by Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony, which he recorded seven times over a period of nearly 50 years.
Herbert von Karajan supported the German musician Anne-Sophie Mutter very early in her career: when she was 13, he invited her to play with the Berliner Philharmoniker. As far as Seiji Ozawa is concerned, Herbert Von Karajan has also played a very important role in his career, as he was the one who taught him the art of conducting.
