Notes & Reviews:
In Search of Beethoven offers a comprehensive and dynamic account of Beethoven's life and works. The film brings together the world's leading performers and top experts to reveal new insights into this legendary composer. A remarkable 55 performances were filmed, capturing the skills of an extraordinary array of world-class artists. Fascinating biographical information is united with extracts from the composer's letters to reveal the true man. Delving beneath the mythological image of Beethoven as tortured and cantankerous, the film reveals someone very different and far more endearing. "One of the finest movies about a great musician I've ever seen." - The ObserverNotes & Reviews:
