Product Description:

As a collection of performances by famous German conductors in Nazi Germany, this video provides an unnerving look at both how Nazi Germany tried to exploit culture and at the artists who essentially consented to turn their art into Nazi propaganda. Containing footage of concerts Karajan gave in occupied Paris, as well as Furtwangler conducting before a backdrop of swastikas, this video provides a truly startling and surreal look at classical music in Nazi Germany. Of course, the performances here are stellar, and captured remarkably well for such old recordings. However, of the most interest is the snapshot it provides of classical music in Germany, circa 1940. Comes with a 16 page booklet written by Frederic Spotts, an expert on German politics and art.
