One of the greatest conductors of the 20th century, von Karajan ruled over the Berlin Philharmonic and European classical music for more than three decades. Celebrated for his recordings of Beethoven, Mozart and Mahler symphonies, he sold some 200 million albums.
From 1916 to 1926, von Karajan studied at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, where he was encouraged to concentrate on conducting by his teacher. In 1929, he conducted a production of Richard Strauss's opera, 'Salome'.
