Bravo Maestro!

A few years ago someone asked “Georges Prêtre, is he still alive?” The grand favorite of Maria Callas, he still conducts, at 85, the great orchestras in Vienna and Berlin. In this clip he makes a rare appearance in his home country .
This astonishing performance of the Intermezzo from Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, with the Orchestre National de France, is from Chorégies d’Orange on August 4. You can understand why he was Callas’ favorite.
