In Search of Haydn
In his lifetime Haydn achieved a degree of fame that easily surpassed that of Mozart and Beethoven. In Search of Haydn is an intricate portrait of Haydn's life told through performances and interviews from today's most admired classical musicians. Shot entirely in HD, the film is a visual extravaganza as well as being a revealing look at this amazing man's life. This new film explores a fresh picture of the life and work of Joseph Haydn. Working its way through the life story, chronologically, the film is resplendent in interviews and live performances. The strength of In Search of Haydn is to see leading performers play and then explain just what makes this music so unique, and will include Gianandrea Noseda, Sir Roger Norrington, Frans Brüggen, Ronald Brautigam, Emanuel Ax, Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques among others.
