Film: Great Composers: IN SEARCH OF BEETHOVEN

Thursday, December 19, 2019


Great Composers

“One of the finest films EVER about a great musician” – The Observer
“It was so terrific, I wept” – Mail on Sunday

The film has been called the best film ever made on Beethoven – and is the choice of the Beethoven Haus (Beethoven’s birthplace) as the ‘go to’ film on Beethoven.  In Search of Beethoven addresses the romantic myth that Beethoven was a heroic, tormented figure battling to overcome his tragic fate of deafness, and who searched for his ‘immortal beloved’ but remained unmarried.  Delving beyond this image, In Search of Beethoven brings together the world’s leading performers and experts on Beethoven to reveal new insights into the legendary composer, revealing someone both different and far more interesting.  

The line-up of performers and interviewees includes Gianandrea Noseda, Sir Roger Norrington, Riccardo Chailly, Claudio Abbado, Fabio Luisi, Frans Brüggen, Ronald Brautigam, Hélène Grimaud, Vadim Repin, Janine Jansen, Paul Lewis, Lars Vogt, and Emanuel Ax among others.  Not rated.  145 minutes.
