In Search of Beethoven delves beyond the image of the tortured, cantankerous, unhinged personality to reveal someone quite different and far more interesting than you could envisage.
This film addresses the romantic myth that Beethoven was a heroic, tormented figure battling with his deafness and is considered one of the best ever films to have been made on Beethoven. Director, Phil Grabsky travelled across Europe and North America to interview historians and musicians between rehearsals and performances.
