Furtwängler… ¿How would I deal with Hitler if I do not want to leave my country in his perverted hands?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on octubre 31, 2009 by nildahofmann

[ Furtwängler’s relationship with – and attitude towards – Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party was a matter of much controversy. In 1934 he was banned from conducting the premiere of Hindemith’s opera Mathis der Maler; though some sources claim that Furtwängler resigned from his post at the Berlin Opera in protest,[1] it is stated by Frederic Spotts that he was in fact presented with the bald choice of either resigning all his positions, or being dismissed.[6] In 1936 it seemed possible that he might follow Erich Kleiber‘s footsteps into exile when he was offered the principal conductor’s post at the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, where he would have succeeded Arturo Toscanini. Toscanini’s biographer Harvey Sachs wrote that Toscanini recommended Furtwängler for the position, one of the few times Toscanini expressed admiration for a fellow conductor.[7] There is every possibility that Furtwängler would have accepted the post,[citation needed] but a report from the Berlin branch of the Associated Press, possibly ordered by Hermann Göring, said that he was willing to take up his post at the Berlin Opera once more. This caused the mood in New York to turn against him; from their point of view, it seemed that Furtwängler was now a full supporter of the Nazi Party.[8]

However, Furtwängler never joined the Nazi Party nor did he really approve of them,[9] much like the composer Richard Strauss, who made no secret of his dislike of the Nazis. Furtwängler always refused to give the Nazi salute,[1] and there is even film footage of him turning away and wiping his hand with a handkerchief after shaking the hand of Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels.[10] ]ängler
