    Thank you for this precious document. Furtwängler’s French is flawless. What emerges from this talk is that the spiritual message of music was his overriding concern. This is what also emanates from his music making.

    Illuminating document of the great Furtwängler. Through it we can feel and hear that his goal was to performe in the service of the composition and the composer. What a relief in this days.

    Thank you Norman.
