“When writing down an opera Strauss naturally had a precise idea of how certain passages were to sound, and if, at rehearsal, one passage or another did not completely correspond to what he had imagined, he ceaselessly criticized it and made corrections, but nothing satisfied him. On such occasions he really did not show his best side, but I willingly accepted it from such a personality because I learned such an enormous amount from him” Karl Böhm

BBC Music Magazine

August 2008


“Least appealing of conductors, Böhm achieves impressive results from an anxious-looking Vienna Philharmonic. This is a chastening lesson in precision, concentration, obedience.”

International Record Review

“…absolutely fascinating from start to finish…a wonderful document… This is a DVD that nobody interested in the art and craft of conducting should miss”
