Furtwängler’s Love is a film essay on Wilhelm Furtwängler, the great conductor; on Furtwängler, the dedicated composer and on Furtwängler, the loving partner. It is also a search for the aesthetic phenomenon and a perspective on the constant struggle of the conductor versus the composer. His widow, Elisabeth Furtwängler, tells in a private atmosphere a lot of intimate, entertaining but also thought-provoking details of their joint life: from their first date to their last kiss. Jan Schmidt-Garre portrays the love-story of two people, and by pure chance one of them belongs to the greatest conductors of our century.
