4 of 4 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars a good supplement to the Dornhelm docu on DG, 3 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Herbert Von Karajan - Maestro For The Screen - A Film By Georg Wubbolt [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
An admirably candid portrait of Karajan and his passion for filming classical music.
His pursuit of an idealised beauty entered into the visual arena-eg.beards were banned, and the balding had to wear wigs.
As ever,a complex personality, full of contradicions emerges.Some of the relationships with film directors were rather strained but his generosity in other other areas comes across well.
-infact,I feel this is a classier appendix to the Dornhlem documentary on DG than EMI`s film (Karajan,a portrait) which is overly reverential.

Mr Walters,
I read a comment of yours on a review of Dornhelm's film here on Amazon wherein you mention that Karajan had several gay affairs, one with Alexis Weissenberg; I was wondering how you came to this conviction and what informs your belief in the case of Weissenberg? I am aware that Richard Osbourne's biography gives a hilariously vague and saucy tip at the end of one of its chapters that Karajan swung both ways, but other than that I've never read or heard anything.
