In Search of Mozart





Rating: TBC
Director: Phil Grabsky
In Search of Mozart was produced with the world’s leading orchestras and musician 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. On its first release the film played in some cinemas for 6 months and remains many people’s – including classical musicians’ – favourite film on Mozart.
Narrated by Bafta-nominated actress Juliet Stevenson

In Search of Chopin





Rating: 12A
Director: Phil Grabsky
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 man who was terrified of public performance, who fled his Polish homeland for Paris never to return, took up with the most notorious transvestite in France, rarely gave public performances and, despite a life of ill-health, wrote some of the deepest and most powerful music ever written?
How exactly did a young Polish boy rise to such heady heights? For four years, award-winning Phil Grabsky travelled the globe in his quest to lay bare the life and music of Chopin. Some of the world’s best musicians provide the music, including Leif Ove Andsnes, Daniel Barenboim, Ronald Brautigam and the Orchestra of the 18th Century.
Funny, heart-breaking, inspirational – this film has been called the first to really illustrate the true nature of this remarkable and still widely-loved composer.

Frida: Viva La Vida





Rating: TBC
Director: Giovanni Troilo
We are delighted to bring Frida: Viva La Vida to Cinemas on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, to coincide with events around International Women’s Day. The stunning documentary, narrated by Italian actress Asia Argento, highlights the two sides of Frida Kahlo’s spirit: on one side the iconic independent and strong woman that everyone knows, tormented by agony and love; and on the other the artist, free from the chains of her physical constrictions. The two faces of the artist will be revealed by pursuing a common thread consisting of Frida’s own words through her letters, diaries, and private confessions. A journey deep into the heart of Mexico that intertwines interviews, historical documents, captivating reconstructions and Frida Kahlo’s own paintings that hang in some of Mexico’s most striking museums. Over the years, Frida Kahlo became an icon and a role model. She has influenced artists, musicians, and stylists, and has become an icon for many a cultural movement, from the LGBTQ community to feminists and political movements around the world.

Jonas Kaufmann: My Vienna





Rating: TBC
Director: 
Offical Web Site

Jonas Kaufmann My Vienna is a deeply personal tribute by the star tenor to the world-famous melodies from the birthplace of waltz and operetta. Filmed live in the magical setting of the Wiener Konzerthaus, the concert features popular Viennese music from Die Fledermaus and Wienerblut by Johann Strauss and Franz Lehár’s The Merry Widow, plus many classic songs inspired by the city of Vienna. Jonas Kaufmann performs with the Prague Philharmonia Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Jochen Rieder and is joined by the internationally acclaimed soprano Rachel Willis-Sørensen. Jonas Kaufmann has always had a special rapport with Austria and Vienna. His grandmother had a fondness for the light classics and was happy to sing the evergreens of Johann Strauss, Franz Lehár and Robert Stolz – a nice contrast to his grandfather’s passion for Wagner. As a child, Jonas spent much of his free time on his grandparents’ farm in Tyrol. Austrian television was almost more familiar to him than its German counterpart. Since then he has had a deep love for Viennese songs and operetta. “The music always put me in a good mood”, he recalls. “When I had unlikeable things to do as a student, like cleaning or vacuuming, all I had to do was play Carlos Kleiber’s Fledermaus recording, and in no time at all I had a grin on my face."

In Search of Haydn





Rating: 12A
Director: Phil Grabsky
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. By speaking to some of the greatest exponents of Haydn’s music, this film redresses the balance and sheds light on the master and his work. Haydn’s life spanned from the end of the Baroque period to Napoleon’s invasion of Vienna, outliving his younger friend Mozart. He was one of the most prolific composers, producing more than 100 symphonies, 64 quartets, 16 extant operas, 51 piano sonatas and the oratorios ‘The Creation’ and ‘The Seasons’. Through intimate and revealing interviews with experts and detailed extracts from Haydn’s personal recollections, the audience gains tremendous insight not only into Haydn’s music but an appreciation of the artist himself. The emphasis of the film, as with all the ‘In Search Of’ films, is on the performance – and interpretation – of the works of Haydn, the composer both Mozart and Beethoven looked up to.

Exhibition on Screen: Easter in Art





Rating: TBC
Director: 
The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history. From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilization’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment. This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day. Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story through the ages and thus depicts the history of us all.

Exhibition on Screen: Frida Kahlo





Rating: TBC
Director: 
This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy. Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, EXHIBITION ON SCREEN explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo. Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics and her cultural heritage. We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this

Concerto: A Beethoven Journey





Rating: TBC
Director: Phil Grabsky
Filmed over the course of four years award-winning director Phil Grabsky follows leading concert pianist Leif Ove Andsnes’s attempt to understand and interpret one of the greatest sets of works for piano ever written: Beethoven’s five piano concertos. Considered one of the top pianists of the age, Leif Ove Andsnes offers rare insights into the mind of a world-class pianist and access to his personal and professional life.
Against the wonderful background of Leif Ove playing these 5 pieces, we also show how these works offer a new and fresh way of examining Beethoven’s life and work. Leif Ove Andsnes’s own life as a top pianist is also revealed – and, despite knowing and performing all the great composers of history, he concludes after this major project with Beethoven’s piano concerti – and a world-wide sell-out tour – that the greatest composer in history is indeed Ludwig van Beethoven.
