Furtwangler's love

Furtwangler's love Wilhelm Furtwängler by Elisabeth Furtwängler

About

Wilhelm Furtwängler is not only the greatest conductor of all time. His insistence on the self-contained form and on the principle of the cadenza makes him the archetype of a vanished age.

The film will therefore be a film of today. It dispenses with the usual interviews with eye-witnesses, who by now are over 90, but with one exception: Elisabeth Furtwängler, Whilhelm's widow, who still personally embodies Furtwängler's principle in her incorruptible nature with all its humour and shrewdness.
