Walter Legge (1906-1979) was the first and most important record producer in classical music. With the help of original documents from his large archive, the museum sheds light on his correspondence and collaboration with influential figures of the international music life such as Maria Callas, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Herbert von Karajan, Carlos Kleiber, Jean Sibelius, Wieland Wagner, as well as the Philharmonia Orchestra London, which was founded by Legge in 1945. A brillant author of letters, reviews and essays, excerpts of which have been chosen as comments to the items on display, Walter Legge »himself« guides the visitors through the exhibition.
