Programs and memorabilia in overall good+ to very good condition. * Gustav Heinrich Ernst Martin Wilhelm Furtwängler (1886-1954) is considered to be one of the greatest symphonic and operatic conductors of the 20th century. During the 1920s and 1930s, Furtwängler was one of the world's leading conductors. He became the principal conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic in 1922, was principal conductor of the Gewandhaus Orchestra (1922-26), and was a major guest conductor of other leading orchestras including the Vienna Philharmonic. He was the leading conductor to remain in Germany during the Second World War and, although not an adherent to the Nazi regime, this decision caused lasting controversy. In 1933 the National Socialist leadership willingly took over financing the famous orchestra so as to adorn their events with them. For the orchestra, the years of the Third Reich were a balancing act between complying with cultural-political and ideological guidelines and preserving artistic autonomy. While they enjoyed a privileged position (the musicians were exempted from military service), they nonetheless repeatedly defied artistic and political pressures from the National Socialist ruling powers. On 30 January 1944 the Philharmonie was destroyed duri. Bookseller Inventory # 37974
