    Dir Ö S1658.jpg
    issued Aug.26th,1994
    Böhm was a "star-conductor",who worked with almost all international
    important orchestras.He liked Mozart´s music very much.
    Although he never joined the NSDAP,he obviously was a convinced Nazi.
    He fully took advantage of his publicly shown sympathy of the Nazi-regime.
    After the war this did not matter much and his international career boomed.
    He died 1981.

    Yes I think your post is offending !
    You did not mention when the stamp was issued ,namely Nov.25th,1955.
    Nor did you tell us,who this conductor was.
    Was it the one,who,by sacrificing his life,halted a run-away tram-car in
    Hodmezoevasarhely.Who was bestoved with the Lenin-Order posthumous
    and whoe´s grave could be seen on the Heroes Cementary in nearby
    Bekescsaba ?
    Or was it the heroic conductor in Budapest,who voluntarily did work every
    day a second shift for more than five years and refused to get payed for
    his overtime? After he had died by a stroke,he received,- Rakosi himself
    gave it to his widow - ,the Stalin-Order ! Can you imagine,the Stalin-Order ?

    This is a serious forum and I would ask you to keep this in mind,when you
    are posting !

    Dir D2284.jpg
    issued Oct.10th,2002 (sorry,for the poor specimen)
    Jochum started his career in 1926,conducting Symphony No.7 by Bruckner
    in Munic.Bruckner remained his favourite composer for all his life.
    He did not much like the compositions of the 20th Century,but performed
    them never-the-less.

    The last stamp I can show in this thread:
    Dir B750.jpg
    Berlin,issued Jan.16th,1986,commemorating WilhelmFurtwängler´s 100th
    birth-anniversary.
    I own a vinyl-record of Beethoven´s Eroica conducted by Furtwängler
    and think it is the best interpretation I ever heard.That is why he is my
    favourite conductor.

    I do like Furtwängler's Beethoven! But my Big Three are Kleiber, Tonscanini and (early) Klemperer.
