Furtwängler fifty years on

by Chris Bertram on November 30, 2004

Today is the fiftieth anniversary of the death of “Wilhelm Furtwängler”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm_Furtw%E4ngler and the BBC are remembering with “a special programme devoted to his conducting on Radio 3”:http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/pip/pip/3lm1v/ this evening. It starts at 19.30 UK time, so adjust for other time zones.

Still the greatest conductor ever recorded. It’s time for another listen to his Lucerne LvB 9th.
