Herbert von Karajan conducts Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 Wiener Philharmoniker

About

Herbert von Karajan leads the Wiener Philharmoniker in Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony at Vienna’s Musikverein in this exceptional archival video footage. Premiered in 1888 with the conductor himself at the baton, the Symphony No. 5 proved popular with audiences while being heavily criticized by the press, hurting the composer emotionally. The work develops a single theme over the course of four movements in a similar fashion to the “Manfred” Symphony, written a few years previously. Beyond the work's obvious beauty, the demanding and nuanced interpretation of Karajan allows us to appreciate its particular structural details as well.
