Herbert von Karajan conducts Mozart's Divertimento Nr. 17 Berliner Philharmoniker

About

Herbert von Karajan and the Berliner Philharmoniker perform Mozart’s captivating Divertimento in D Major—one of many highlights of the 35-year relationship between the conductor and the orchestra! In 1987 as part of the 750th anniversary of Berlin’s founding, this concert kicked off a series of celebrations in the German capital, a festive moment whose preparations in West and East Berlin were a subtle prelude to the events of 1989. With a length and instrumentation reminiscent of the composer’s symphonic works, the Divertimento’s structuring in an extended series of six movements and one-on-a-part texture are typical of the chamber music of the period. A masterpiece composed by the classical genius at the tender age of 16!
