In Search of the Great Composers: In Search of Chopin

Phil Grabsky brings us the music and life story of Fryderyk Chopin, considered one of the greatest composers of all time. Chopin's grave in Paris remains a place of pilgrimage and his music continues to sell out concert halls worldwide - but who exactly was this astonishing man?

In Search of the Great Composers: In Search of Haydn

Loading...
In this eagerly-awaited documentary, Phil Grabsky's biographical account of Haydn's life is a visual and aural extravaganza, including breath-taking performances by some of the world's most celebrated musicians.
