Wilhelm Furtwängler: any good books/articles?

Wilhelm Furtwängler: any good books/articles?

Postby Staropramen » Fri Aug 19, 2016 7:35 am

Searching online for any information about Wilhelm Furtwängler, the German conductor who chose to stay in Germany during WWII turns up articles dripping with jewish bias and propaganda. Does anyone know of any untainted books or articles about Wilhelm Furtwängler's life during the period of the Third Reich?

Sent your question to someone in Germany, Staro.
Nothing known by this person other than two posthumous books containing notes and thoughts by WF, which apparently were not at first intended for publication --

Ton und Wort, F.A. Brockhaus, Wiesbaden 1954.
Vermächtnis, F.A. Brockhaus, Wiebaden 1956.

Both in German, some online discussion, for example --

Sorry not much result, but maybe you can use it.
Way past time for so great a musician as W. Furtwängler to be fully recognised and for poisonous talmudist criticism to be silent ... Biography on YT seemed to contain at least some of the serpentine material you mention; instead, here's a Berlin 1944 performance of Anton Bruckner's 9th.

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Hello,

I don't know of one about Furtwangler, but there is an interesting article about Herbert Von karajan from National Vanguard entitled "Herbert von Karajan Unrepentant National Socialist" here's the link:

http://www.nationalvanguard.org/2015/06 ... socialist/

It's interesting.
