Good long discussion of the conductor in today’s NY Times. Not sure if this link will work.

Unable to paste link but you know where to go if you want to read an excellent article.

Yes, that's the one. I read it too. Couldn't decide whether to put it in the Musical Controversies sub-forum or here. Bertie beat me to it. 

An interesting, nuanced take on Furtwängler. It's a perennial theme in the arts: can you separate the art from the artist? I think you can, provided that the art or is creation itself isn't problematic. A fine line, sometimes.

Succinctly put!
