A little Furtwangler

December 8, 2008

Pretty tall, actually. And what a mover.

The greatest maestro in the history of recorded sound (Wilhelm Furtwangler, 1886-1954) conducts the overture to Mozart’s Don Giovanni, in Salzburg, 1954. It will never be played better. In rare colour footage, too. And quite respectable sound.
