A Magnificent Performance
1 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Verdi's most heartfelt work, Requiem, is given a moving performance at La Scala, Milan in 1967.

Master Film Director Henri George Clouzot is responsible for a beautifully staged and shot presentation of this work.

The film quality is remarkably good, considering its vintage. The sound is likewise notable for its sharp dynamic contrasts.

Herbert von Karajan conducts with great eloquence and sensitivity. A "dream" cast is assembled to realize this score: Leontyne Price, soprano; Fiorenza Cossotti, mezzo; Luciano Pavaroti, tenor; and Nicolai Ghiaurov, bass.

Add to this, the La Scala Symphony and Chorus, and what can one say? A genuine landmark performance, which will undoubtedly become legendary.

How wonderful to have this preserved for future generations to enjoy.
