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.
In 1933 von Karajan made his conducting debut at the Salzburg Festival with a scene from Gounod's opera, 'Faust'. It was also in 1933 that von Karajan became a member of the Nazi party, for which he would later be criticised.
