Nikolaus Harnoncourt
Johanna Fürstauer (Herausgeberin)


A Retrospective through Interviews



Music brings pleasure: Nikolaus Harnoncourt reflects persuasively and passionately on his metier. His texts, speeches and interviews reveal the vision of a great artist, looking back on his own influence and far beyond into musical history. He addresses subjects such as the urgency of art, Haydn, and “a crocodile called Mozart”, and considers romantic insight and baroque reminiscence. He gazes into the depths of an immoral world and shares anecdotes from the Vienna Music Society. He explains why artists cannot lie, why The Magic Flute remains an eternal mystery, and why great art ultimately arises from doubt.

Nicolaus Harnoncourt was born in 1929 in Berlin. In 1953, he founded his ensemble for old music, the Concentus Musicus. As a conductor, he won numerous international awards, including the Musikpreis of the Ernst von Siemens Foundation (2002) and the Kyoto Prize (2005). Recent publication: Mozart Dialoge (2005, “The Mozart Dialogues”).

Johanna Fürstauer was born in 1931 and studied German and English language and literature as well as performance of old music. She is a writer, editor and translator of numerous cultural-historic texts and books on classical music.
