Herbert von Karajan and Joachim Kaiser talk about Antonín Dvorák's Symphony No. 9 "From the New World". When Karajan began recording on film in the mid 1960s, one of the men he turned to for artistic assistance was the noted French film director Henri-Georges Clouzot, the creator of classic "films noirs" such as "Quai des Orfèvres" and "Wages of Fear" (Le salaire de la peur). Between 1965 and 1967, Clouzot directed five works for Karajan. Dvorák's Ninth Symphony was produced in 1966. This documentary offers valuable insights into Karajan's art of conducting and into his interpretation of Dvorák's "great intimacy with nature, which his music expresses in every tune and which is also a kind of folklore" (Herbert von Karajan).
