Herbert von Karajan, Beauty As I See It Portrait of the great Austrian conductor

About

Maestro Herbert von Karajan was a controversial figure in classical music, viewed by some as the paragon of musicianship and others as the embodiment of a sell-out. This documentary behind Karajan's regal façade.

The lifeblood of this documentary is drawn from the maestro himself, weaving together archival rehearsal and concert footage with Karajan's personal recollections and interviews. Candid and revealing comments from some of the men and women who accompanied Karajan through his musical and professional life fill out this filmed portrait. The result is a multi-faceted, multi-layered study of the artist that nonetheless ends in deepening the confusion around this great 20th century conductor.
