Vienna Philharmonic: Mozart's Requiem (1991)

The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Georg Solti, perform Mozart's Requiem in D minor, KV 626, on December 5, 1991, on the 200th anniversary of the composer's death; all the other details and background information is on screen for you to enjoy.
