From the creators behind the Exhibition on Screen series, comes this profile of the underrated Joseph Haydn (1732-1809). Haydn an influential idol to Mozart and Beetohoven, but today this musical genius is overshadowed by the younger composers he inspired. In Search of Haydn is an investigation into the man’s life and his extraordinary work. With performances by the world’s best musicians and orchestras interpreting his greatest achievements, discover or rediscover the music of a prolific master who wrote over 100 symphonies. With excerpts from Haydn’s own writing and interviews with experts and historians, get to know an extraordinary artist on the big screen who today does not get his due in concert halls.
