About

Featuring Herbert von Karajan in rehearsals of Mozart's Don Giovanni and a Wagner concert for the Salzburg Festival, this film is a deeply moving tribute to one of the greatest musicians of the century. Highlights include Karajan and Jessye Norman performing Isolde’s Liebestod.

In a revealing look at the legendary maestro in rehearsals and performances at the 1987 Salzburg Festival, we follow Karajan as he works with his colleagues, the Vienna Philharmonic, Kathleen Battle, Samuel Ramey, and Jessye Norman.
