Furtwängler in Frankfurt

Among the studies penned by faithful members, there is one that illustrates, in especially detailed fashion, a particular period in the career of Furtwängler: that covering his activity in Frankfurt, either as titular director of the concerts of the ‘Museums-Gesellschaft’ or as guest conductor, notably with his Berlin Philharmonic.

This circular, as it was then called, co-authored in 1986 by Hermann Wendel and Philippe Jacquard, had aged notably when transferred from a printed format (prepared with our limited means at the time…) to our earlier site, losing in the process its illustrations and undergoing textual modifications.

Here it is, in our new, updated graphic presentation, corrected and completed by what has been discovered since, and with a refreshed and augmented iconography.
