Herbert von Karajan was a major conductor of the 20th century and to this day is for many the epitome of the musician. His career began in the 1930s and ended with his death in 1989, during which he made a number of important decisions that defined his life and shaped the image of him as an artist.
One of these decisions was his collaboration with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, which began in 1955 and lasted until his death. His collaboration with the orchestra became the epitome of his style and conception of music. He once said: "I believe there is no better place to send my message than the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra".
Another important decision was the one he made in 1958, when he decided to make Mozart his definitive work. Until then he had concentrated mainly on Beethoven, but after a trip to Salzburg in 1957 he decided to choose Mozart as the theme for his next series of concerts. These series became one of Herbert von Karajan's most important works in the 1960s .
