Profile:
German conductor and composer.
Born January 25, 1886 in Berlin, German Empire. Died November 30, 1954 in Baden-Baden, Germany.
Furtwängler is widely regarded as one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century.
He started as titular conductor of Berliner Philharmoniker at the age of 26 from 1922 to 1945, and a second period after second world war since 1952 until he died in 1954.
