From the makers of In Search of Mozart and In Search of Beethoven, (nominated for RPS Awards), filmmaker Phil Grabsky and his company Seventh Art Productions are now embarking on In Search of Haydn to explore the most elusive of the three Viennese composers.

Haydn (1723-1809) was one of the greatest musical innovators. Mozart and Beethoven greatly looked up to him as Papa Haydn and yet today in concert halls he is often overshadowed in favour of his younger contemporaries.As Andras Schiff pointed out during the recent anniversary in 2009:

'The world needs to appreciate him much more: of all the really great composers, he is still the most underrated.'

By speaking to the greatest living exponents of Haydn’s music, this film intends to readdress the balance and to shed light on this forgotten master and his work.

The Endellion String Quartet will also perform Haydn’s Op 76/1 live before the film.

There will be a live Q&A with Director Phil Grabsky directly after the screening.
