Every weeknight this month at 8pm Classic FM's Full Works Concert is celebrating the world's greatest orchestras. Here are some fascinating photos and facts from their histories.
Karajan’s first performance with the Berlin Phil in April 1938 was such a sensation that it aroused the jealousy of their principal conductor Wilhelm Furtwängler. After his death, the orchestra made Herbert von Karajan its music director for life. Energetic, charismatic and visionary, Karajan honed Berlin into arguably the greatest orchestra in the world.
