From the award-winning maker of In Search of Mozart and In Search of Beethoven comes the final film of the trilogy, In Search of Haydn. Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was one of the world's greatest musical innovators. His close friend Mozart and his student Beethoven greatly looked up to him. Yet today in concert halls he is often overshadowed in favour of his younger contemporaries. By speaking to the greatest living exponents of Haydn's music, this film redresses the balance and sheds light on the master and his work. Grabsky's biographical account of the life of Haydn is a visual and aural extravaganza. Through intimate and revealing interviews with experts, and detailed extracts from Haydn's personal letters, the audience gains tremendous insight not only into Haydn's music, but an appreciation of the artist himself.
