In Search of Beethoven

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Following the success on In Search of Mozart director Phil Grabsky goes in search of Beethoven.

No other composer has been so often quoted, written about, adopted for political and revolutionary causes (ranging from Marxism to fascism) and painted, but who was the real Beethoven? Who was the man behind the romantic image of the tortured artist with the unruly hair, unhinged personality and furrowed brow?

This new film will explore the truth behind the many layers of myth and legend surrounding a man hailed not only as the world's first truly independent composer, but also the most important.
