It is today and I will play some Karajan today. Say whatever you wish but Karajan did left some amassing recordings.

There is a good British site dedicated to Karajan

What however is interesting and something that I miss in Karajan is my knowledge of any book by Karajan. He was in the epicenter of many events right along with many very interesting people. Does anyone know if Karajan left any dairies or autobiography? It might be very interesting to read…

...Eliette v K? I couldn't find online info on it, but I'm sure it's been published.

In the NPR's site:

… on the left side there is a 15 min log interview with Anne-Sophie Mutter about her Karajan memories. Very pleasant…

Her section about Karajan made her to get a first Strud is particularly is very interesting. The Karajan’s explanation that he conducts two orchestras – one in front of him and one in his dream orchestra is exactly how I approach audio.

On the radio this week, heard his performance of the Frank Bridge Variations. It was GRAND!

No matter what you say but Karajan sometimes did played German classic very wonderfully. However, I never heard any interesting Bach recording made by Karajan. Is it intentionally or accidental?

His recording in 1973 for DG is maybe not a first choice but if you are into the sound of janowitz's voice then this is a pretty decent Passion selon Saint Matthieu. The rest of the other soloists are also first rate singers.
