: Vintage Years

Celebrating Salzburg
Six programmes in which Richard Osborne explores the story of the Salzburg Festival.
5: The Later Karajan Years
This programme moves from the early 1970s to the death of Karajan in 1989. During these years, the festival was seen to be increasingly elitist and set in its ways, yet in many respects this was as rich a period as any in the festival's history, as old masters rubbed shoulders with a brilliantly gifted generation of conductors, instrumentalists and stage directors. The programme features the production of Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte mounted in honour of Karl
Bohm's 80th birthday, Karajan conducting music by Orff, Verdi and Strauss, Clifford Curzon 's last
Salzburg recital, unaccompanied
Bach played by Itzhak Perlman , the European Community Youth
Orchestra's festival debut playing
Schoenberg under Claudio Abbado , and Jessye Norman singing the Liebestod from Wagner's Tristan und Isolde. With reflections by a Vienna Philharmonic instrumentalist on the conducting styles of Bohm, Karajan and Levine, and comment and reminiscences from Marilyn Home, Karajan himself, the festival's long-serving press officer
Dr Hans Widrich , actor and director
Otto Schenk , and critic HH Stuckenschmidt.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
