In Search of Beethoven

In Search of Beethoven
Documentary, Music | 2019 | NR. 2hr 19min
CAST: Emanuel Ax, Jonathan Biss, Riccardo Chailly DIRECTOR: Phil Grabsky EXHIBITION ON SCREEN | THE GREAT COMPOSERS SERIES

In Search of Beethoven: takes a comprehensive look at the composer's life through historical research and Beethoven's biography and letters, but with the emphasis always on the performance—and interpretation—of Beethoven's music. From his early piano concertos through the "Moonlight Sonata," "Für Elise," and the immortal notes of the Fifth and Ninth Symphonies, Beethoven's music remains as beloved, popular, and relevant as any work of art has ever been. In Search of Beethoven brings together the world's leading performers and experts on Beethoven to reveal new insights into this celebrated composer. Above all, In Search of Beethoven addresses the central myth of Beethoven's life and work—that of the heroic, tormented figure battling to overcome the tragic fate of being struck down by deafness in his prime; a man who searched for his elusive, eternal 'immortal beloved,' yet was never to attain lasting happiness.
