Wow, this took a long time to read. I've been getting into classical music lately so I picked up a biography of one of the most talented and notorious conductors of the 20th century. Although the book does a great job of looking at all angles of Karajan's personality and his various indiscretions, it is a little too packed with references to artists and works that I've never heard of. Not great for the beginning classical music fan, but it had its moments.
