Bachmann, who knew Herbert von Karajan for many years, has successfully penetrated the smokescreen of flattery and half-truths which comprised the earlier biographies of the famed musical conductor, to give us an unsparingly honest portrait of the man behind the legend--fanatically devoted to his work and possessed of an unparalleled ambition. 8 pages of black-and-white photographs.
