The Best Of Karajan

It's not "kerajaan" but Karajan, or his full name Herbert von Karajan an Austrian orchestra and opera conductor, one of the best! Just search in YouTube and you'll get long list of his conducting work from numerous composers. What I would like to share here is basically how he could not only command the orchestra, but the audience as well. The piece is "Radetzky March" Op. 228 by Johann Strauss Sr. This is one of the most played march in the world, if you notice even the school band play this piece; maybe during the Sports Day. Simply the best!

"No music is vulgar, unless it is played in a way that makes it so"
Herbert von Karajan, 1908~1989
