Storyline

The story begins with the composer's father Leopold with whom Mozart conducted a passionate and tortured correspondence. It is Leopold who knows Mozart's secrets. And there is another voice: that of the music itself. Music is the key to unlocking the emotions of Mozart, starting in this film with the great piano works. Without this key, how can we ever understand the emotions that gave birth to some of the most beautiful sounds the world has ever heard? The first great phase of Mozart's brief life was that of the travelling child prodigy - gifted as a performer and writer of music - who grew into the genius who, working within the restrictions of his time, began to rewrite the musical rules.But there was another facet to Mozart - the adult thinker aware of the bigger picture, passionately attached to the progressive values of the Enlightenment - impressively well-read, a speaker of most European languages (even a little English), an Austrian Catholic, a Freemason and above all a ...

Very well done series of Mozart's life.
27 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Genius of Mozart is very well crafted, though for music fans Charles Hazelwood's presenting mayn't be to people's tastes. Though it is beautifully filmed, and very well acted, with Claire Skinner as Nannerl and Jack Tarlton as Mozart himself. The real star is the fantastic music, from some dramatisations of some of his operas like Marriage of Figaro, and the despair of his Requiem. I do confess, I did shed a tear at the end, it was sad. I love Mozart's music, it is very relaxing, and quite dramatic when it needs to be. The Requiem will always be my favourite. All in all, a very good series, not as good as Beethoven one year after, but nonetheless recommended for those fans of Mozart. 9/10 Bethany Cox
