I was Herbert von Karajan's mate


My prediction that marriage was the musical 'must have' for 2008 is proving to be uncannily accurate. January hasn't finished, and already we have 'marriage - the book' and 'marriage - the CDs'. Herbert von Karajan's widow is marking the centenary of the conductor's birth on April 5, 2008 with a book telling the story of their 31 year marriage. Revelations in the style of Cécile Sarkozy are not expected from Eliette von Karajan who is seen in my photo trying not to put the maestro's latest toy onto the rocks.

Read about the book in German here, or in a fittingly excruciating Babel Fish translation here. And it gets worse. Deutsche Grammophon are redefining adventurous programming with a 2 CD tie in, see below.
Now read a rather more interesting, and exclusive, story from Herbert von Karajan's past here.
