IN SEARCH OF HAYDN

 

“An ideal introduction to one of the greatest composers of his time”

BBC Music Magazine

 

 

 



Joseph Haydn is the composer that Mozart and Beethoven revered.  Yet he is somewhat overlooked.  In this documentary, award-winning filmmaker Phil Grabsky goes in search of one of the greatest composers of all.  Grabsky’s biographical account of the life of Haydn includes breath-taking performances by some of the world’s most celebrated musicians.  Through enlightening interviews with experts, detailed extracts from personal recollections and beautiful location footage Grabsky offers tremendous insight into not only Haydn’s music but the man himself.
