Karajan in Word and Vision
Herbert von Karajan einmal anders

Rehearsal and recording of Tschaikovsky's Fifth Symphony, 1984 excerpt from the dress rehearsal.

"By now we've heard this theme ad nauseum: once, twice, as a reminiscence...then again, and once again...and then we hear it yet again, but this time it is not as elastic as all of the other times. The...I have to see it in your faces; I have to see something, now you've got it, triumphal...! (fade out to rehearsal)

HvK: "Bravo!…Now I just have one request: please play this beautifully at 7:00, and we won't have to worry about the future of the opera!"
