Herbert von Karajan conducts two masterpieces by J.S. Bach – With Anne-Sophie Mutter Berliner Philharmoniker

About

Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the few baroque composers whose works Herbert von Karajan recorded, with the conductor specializing primarily in Classical and Romantic repertoire. This rare footage of the 1984 New Year’s concert features the Berliner Philharmoniker and Karajan in a two-part program. First they perform Bach’s Violin Concerto in E Major with the brilliant Anne-Sophie Mutter as soloist. Then they present Bach's Magnificat in D Major for soloists, choir, and orchestra, a true audience favorite.
