Wilhelm Furtwängler’: The debate continuesmain
Having kicked off last week with the first of my Furtwängler videocasts, DG have issued another by my former BBC colleague Rob Cowan, who talks about the conductor’s Schenkerian approach to music and about the difficulty of appraising his wartime tapes:
‘As a Jew,’ says Rob, ‘how can I reconcile myself to listening to something that would have been impossible for me to hear?’
Highly intelligent, well worth eight minutes of your time.
The next Lebrecht videocast goes up tomorrow.
