 Le combat des chefs - Karajan/Bernstein

Emmanuelle Franc / France / 2015 / 52 min / french
The parallel and diverging destinies of conductors Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990) and Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989). These two titans dominated the classical music world of the 20th century, reflecting the dissensions of their time. But they also helped to rejuvenate the record, television and opera industries. Icons of the 1970s, they made use of their immense talent, charisma and charm to make classical music more accessible to all.
