Sergiu Celibidache conducts Ravel and Debussy Münchner Philharmoniker

About

Filmed in Cologne two years before his death in a Ravel-Debussy programme, the old lion gives his musical legacy.

With all the contained authority and still noticeable strength of an old lion, Sergiu Celibidache, eighty-two years old the evening of this concert in Cologne, conducts with a finger, an eyebrow and a nod of the head, the hypnotised musicians of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. It was with this formation, of which he was the musical director from 1980, that the conductor of Romanian origin was recorded on May 13 and 14, 1994, two years before his death on August 14, 1996.
