With extensive archive footage, some never before seen, and interviews with - among others - Anne-Sophie Mutter, Gundula Janowitz, René Kollo, Christa Ludwig, Seiji Ozawa, Simon Rattle, Christian Thielemann, and Helmut Schmidt, here is a unique, revealing portrait of this complex and sometimes contoversial figure"--Container.
