"Outstanding. A must-see film!" - Chicago Sun-Times

Made to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth, In Search Of Mozart was produced with the world's leading orchestras and musicians, and is told through a 25,000 mile journey along every route Mozart followed. This is a detective story that takes us to the heart of genius.

Without resorting to docu-drama or visual re-enactment, In Search of Mozart traces the composer's life through his music and extensive correspondence. From K1a to K626 (Requiem), over 80 works are featured in chronological order, revealing striking parallels between the music and Mozart's own experiences. Throughout, it is the music that takes centre stage, with the jigsaw of Mozart's life fitting around it. With rigorous analysis from musicologists and experts such as Jonathan Miller, Cliff Eisen, Nicholas Till, Bayan Northcott and the late Stanley Sadie, a new, vivid impression of the composer emerges. It dispels the many common myths about Mozart's genius, health, relationships, death and character, to present a new image, very different from Milos Forman's Amadeus.

Narrated by Juliet Stevenson and with Mozart voiced by Samuel West, the film features interviews and performances with over 70 of the greatest exponents of Mozart's music including: Christophe Rousset, Sir Roger Norrington, Rene Jacobs, Sir Charles Mackerras, Renee Fleming, Magdalena Kozena, Sandrine Piau, Ian Bostridge, Gerald Finley, Sir Thomas Allen, Imogen Cooper, Pierre Laurent Aimard, Leif ove Andsnes, Lang Lang and Skampa Quartet. Frans Bruggen's Orchestra of 18th Century and Ronald Brautigam perform much of the orchestral repertoire but the film also includes live performances from the Vienna Philharmonic, Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Salzburg Camerata, Bayerischen Rundfunks, Concerto Koln, Netherlands Opera, Staatskapelle Berlin and Prague Estates Theatre.

"The most comprehensive film about Mozart that I have ever seen!" - Sir Roger Norrington, Conductor

"Conveys the intensity of the musical experience more grippingly than anything I have seen on film or television!" - The Times
