'Bandleader' ? bwah ha humour.HVK was the ROCKSTAR of conductors.
Fer Karajan out loud, that's a good pic!
The photograph was taken in 1938. That year, Karajan conducted the Berlin Philharmonic for the first time -landmark in his career.As Karajan's fame grew, so did Wilhelm Furtwängler's dislike of "Little K".Recommended: "Taking Sides", a film by Istvan Szabo, adapted from Ronald Harwood's play.According to Sviatoslav Richter, Karajan was more than content with publicity; he loved to pose etc.
The French call him "Air Bear." But then, that's what they call anyone named Herbert.
Give me Fricsay or Furtwangler any day!
