The Herbert von Karajan - Online Archive, which is part of the unique Karajan Archive, includes 3345 performances that are thematically linked to Herbert von Karajan. It includes all the performances in which Herbert von Karajan took part himself (starting with his earliest performance as a pianist in 1915), as well as the memorial events after his death. You will find details of each individual concert, such as date, compositions played and all performers and soloists. There is also information about the concert hall or opera house where the performance took place and an exact description. This documentation is rounded out by a comprehensive collection of contemporary press reviews, and you can read the original text of these reviews.
The 1279 recordings also provide an overview of the conductor's extensive recording activity.
In preparing this documentation we were able to draw extensively on previous work in this field, and John Hunt`s register is particularly worthy of mention in this context. Other entries were made possible or supplemented by purchases and collections. As it is the case with any archive, we have endeavoured to make this database as complete as possible and will be pleased to receive more information and suggestions from our visitors.
You can either search for specific performances or recordings, or simply browse through the Karajan Archive.
