Berlin Philarmonic - GERMANY

The first classic music concert I remember watching on TV as was Beethoven's Ninth Symphony performed by the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Herbert von Karajan... I was very young (only later I've found out that was Beethoven) but the image of Karajan really made a impact - I also remember listening to my father classic records, holding a pencil and pretending I was conducting the orchestra. This amazing Vintage Maxi-Card  celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Berlin Philharmonic celebrated in 1982 really made me return to that living room in my parents house. Thank you very much Judith for such a awesome postcard. This postcard took 3 days to arrive!
