In Person: Filmmaker PHIL GRABSKY
Award-winning filmmaker Phil Grabsky (In Search of Mozart, In Search of Beethoven, The Boy MirTen Years in Afghanistan), offers the eagerly awaited final part of his trilogy of films about the great composers, with his latest feature-length documentary, In Search of Haydn.
As with the two previous international hits, Grabsky's biographical account of the life of Haydn is a visual and aural extravaganza, including breath-taking performances by some of the world's most celebrated and contemporary musicians: Gianandrea Noseda, Sir Roger Norrington, The Orchestra of the 18th Century with Frans Brüggen, The Endellion String Quartet, Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques, Ian Page and the Classical Opera Company, Ronald Brautigam, Sophie Bevan and Emmanuel Ax, amongst others.
As with Mozart and Beethoven, Grabsky's latest film follows the same format of presenting the composer's biography and music chronologically. 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. The emphasis of the film, as with the previous films, is on the performance and interpretation of Haydn's music, with performances from the world's greatest musicians and orchestras.
