About

When Sergiu Celibidache returned to conduct the Berliner Philharmoniker in March 1992, it was his first appearance with the orchestra in nearly four decades. He had gotten his start with them in 1945, just after the end of the war—but though he was brilliant, he was unorthodox and uncompromising, and he often butted heads with musicians and colleagues. In 1954 the orchestra chose Herbert von Karajan to take over conducting duties, and Celibidache felt snubbed, vowing never again to conduct the ensemble. It was only a personal invitation from Richard von Weizsäcker, the President of Germany, that convinced him to return.
