A production of UNITEL, Munich

Dedicated by Leonard Bernstein to the memory of his wife, this deeply moving 1988 live performance of Mozart’s Requiem was filmed in the Baroque splendour of the Abbey Church of Diessen, Bavaria.

Bonus material: Introduction by Leonard Bernstein.


“Bernstein cast a spell over Mozart’s Requiem…sending us out into the summer night with an indescribable feeling of hope.” -– Abendzeitung, Munich
