"Richard Osborne's Karajan is a monumental work of scholarship, of integrity, of sympathy born of respect and humanity. A woven tapestry, rather than a mere listing of events and accomplishments, it reveals itself quietly and objectively, leaving the readers to judge a man whose personality was inseparable from the history of his age and his own background" (Yehudi Menuhin)

"Meticulously researched and intellectually thrilling...a wise, endearingly funny book" (Peter Conrad Observer)

"A vivid, hard-edged, candid and open-eyed portrait" (Michael Kennedy Sunday Telegraph)

"A towering achievement...of immense importance" (Peter Alward Gramophone)

"Likely to prove a classic" (David Gutman Classic CD)

From the Publisher:

The definitive biography of the charismatic conductor, whose talent and personality brought fame, wealth and notoriety throughout the world.
