Herbert von Karajan


By Roger Vaughan, Published in 1986



Roger Vaughan provides frank interviews and insight (the first authorized in English) into the life and times of the notoriously press-shy, revered Austrian conductor, aged 77 at the time of writing. A giant of the vanishing autocratic school, which bred the unique aura of musical dictatorship and awed respect for genius that surrounds the great maestros. This book is a privileged glimpse into the Karajan world, a fascinating “insiders” portrait; accomplished with the cooperation of Karajan himself and his intimates, as well as the author’s objective humor and critical insight. The result is a fascinating, detailed, picture  of arguably the greatest conductor who ever lived.
