I don't think anyone here has seen it yet.
I just bought it. I'll post my thoughts on this thread soon after I see it.
I am not sure if you've seen other music/composer movies: Some good one's I've seen are: The Life of Verdi
(1984, Kultur) - Epic Story! Personal favorite!Immortal Beloved
- Excellent Personal favorite!The Red Violin
- Fictitious but Awesome! Personal favorite!Harvest of Sorrow - Tony Palmer's Film About Rachmaninov
- mostly from letters with historical footage.The Desire of Love
- Chopin. ~ tolerable.Impromptu
- Stereotypical depiction of Chopin.A Song To Remember
(1945) - the most notable of Chopin movies for over 65 years. A bit cliche.Song Without End: The story of Franz Liszt
- From director of Song of Love
done 12 years later. Sound tracked by Bolet - one of my top 5 pianists!Amadeus
- Over-rated and makes a mockery of his greatness IMHO.Wagner - The Complete Epic
(1983, Kultur) - Drags on in the beginning. A fine performance by Richard Burton.In Search of Beethoven
- decent account, OK.In Search of Mozart
I've seen others, like the BBC and Kultur stuff, Tchaikovsky, Bach, etc., but I sold them since they were either lacking in content, or outright dubious, so I didn't list them.
