Phil Grabsky's Mozart Dazzles New York!
25 August 2006 | by sd414197See all my reviews

On 14 August, Phil Grabsky's "In Search of Mozart" premiered to a New York audience with triumphant flair at the Mostly Mozart Festival, an annual occasion that hosts the world's most renowned Mozart scholars and musicians. It was well received by the Lincoln Center audience, comments echoing in the foyer with excitement and astonishment. It gave me tremendous pleasure to be in attendance at the premiere, having the opportunity to meet the director/producer who has given us the greatest representation of Mozart in film, Phil Grabsky.

The roster of featured artists, scholars and compositions is nothing short of amazing. The greatest caliber of musicianship in combination with Mr. Grabsky's ability to unconventionally capture the music and narrative is an unforgettable experience. I honestly cannot say enough about the film, and I plan to endorse it to the fullest deserving capacity!

With Highest Recommendations, Sherry L. Davis (Ohio, USA)
