Karajan Easter Festival Official Programmes (23)


Note: My collection of Easter Festival programmes produced in Karajan's lifetime is now complete.
I am greatly indebted to Rossana Cimarelli who over the last couple of years
has located and then kindly sent me six of the missing programmes.
Thank you Rosy!
