Verdi, Messa da Requiem

Originally performed at La Scala in 1967 to celebrate the tenth
anniversary of Toscanini's death, this production with the orchestra and
chorus of the Teatro alla Scala was presented in Moscow, Montreal and New
York, in addition to Milan. It was recorded on film in 1967, now with the
young Luciano Pavarotti replacing Carlo Bergonzi. One of Karajan's earliest
film productions (and his first color film), it reflects his innovativeness
especially through his choice of Henri-Georges Clouzot as director. Clouzot
was the creator of classic "films noirs" such as "Quai des Orfèvres" and
"Wages of Fear".
