In Search of Haydn
Award-winning filmmaker Phil Grabsky offers the eagerly awaited final part of his trilogy of films about the great composers, with his latest feature-length documentary, In Search of Haydn. As with his two previous international hits (In Search of Mozart, In Search of Beethoven), Grabsky's biographical account of the life of Haydn is a visual and aural extravaganza, including breathtaking performances by some of the world's most celebrated musicians. Through intimate and revealing interviews with experts, and detailed extracts from Haydn's personal letters, the audience gains tremendous insight into, not only Haydn's music, but the man himself. The emphasis of the film is on the performances and interpretations of Haydn's music. The voice of Haydn is by Henry Goodman.
