Über Wilhelm Furtwängler
This book first talks about Furtwängler, the composer and then presents two articles dedecated to Furtwängler, the conductor who had been celebrated in Germany and all over the world, but later became politically controversial and consequently was attacked many times. Elisabeth Furtwängler shows the great significance the work of Ludwig van Beethoven in particular, yet also the operas of Richard Wagner had in the life of her husband. The topicality of Wilhelm Furtwängler's disc recordings whose development and production are described in the battle with technology, attests to his brilliance in interpretation still today. The result is a very lively, yet also very personal picture of the composer, conductor and person Wilhelm Furtwängler.
