Autographed matte, double-weight original candid photograph of the legendary conductor, composer and pianist backstage after a Vienna Philharmonic concert in the late 1970ís.† The line in the photograph is on the negative.

 

Bernstein first conducted the Vienna Symphoniker on May 28, 1948, three years after the end of World War II.† Bernstein until his death had a love affair with the musicianship of the Vienna Philharmonic which began in 1966 and ended in 1990 near the time of his death.† Despite his fruitful relationship with the Philharmonic, as a Jew he had a more mixed relationship with the City of such musical greatness, Beethoven, Brahms and Mahler made their careers there after all.† That said, Vienna had either expelled, or sent their Jewish citizens to Hitlerís camps and gas chambers.†††

 

Bernstein conducted the Vienna Philharmonic from 1966 each year until his death either at the Musikverein, or the Wiener Konzerthaus.† He also led the orchestra at the Wiener Staatsoper in several productions and five seasons at the Salzburg Festspiele.

 

An unusual photograph you will not see again.
