In Search of Mozart 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

I think this is a fine and sensory film that gives a clear and intruiging account of Mozart's genius. The passionate interviews by world-class musicians personify each note of his compositions with character and life, whilst the well-researched narration remains engaging throughout. Wish the performances of some of Mozart's more famous pieces had been available in full on the DVD extras, but otherwise cannot complain. Looking forward to seeing the director's next effort; 'In Search of Beethoven' which I hope will be just as good.
