"I Remember"... Dr. Karl Böhm His life, his music


A one-hour portrait of the great conductor.

Born in Graz, Austria, on 28 August 1894, Karl Böhm made his conducting debut in his hometown in 1917 before going to Munich in 1921, where he was hired by Bruno Walter. He made his debut at the Vienna State Opera in 1933 and was appointed general manager of the Dresden State Opera the same year. This marked the beginning of an intensive and fruitful collaboration with Richard Strauss (Böhm conducted the world premieres of Die Schweigsame Frau and Daphne). He died in Salzburg on 14 August 1981.
