"In Search of Mozart." is a documentary film about the life and works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
28 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"In Search of Mozart," is an artistic, realistic and beautiful tribute to the musical genius, Mozart during his 250th anniversary period. This film is timeless. With its marvelous cinematography, pertinent past and present-day film clips and photographs, and its live interviews and performances by famous orchestras and musicians, "In Search of Mozart" is a film classic with worldwide appeal. I was impressed by the great lengths that the director, Phil Grabsky went to seek out specific rehearsals of particular Mozart's pieces and incorporate parts of them into his film. Mr. Grabsky sought out interviews and solo performances of many music greats. Famous contemporary pianists, as Lang Lang, contributed their musical talents and knowledge to the film. Every musician and music lover should add this film to his private collection of excellent films. I would hope that Mr. Grabsky would make more doc films of this type about other famous composers as Beethovan. The film is informative and has educational purpose. As part of a music appreciation course, students could view this film. The film would be an asset to a school film library.
