Joseph Haydn is the composer that Mozart and Beethoven revered, yet he is somewhat overlooked. In this eagerly-awaited documentary, award-winning filmmaker Phil Grabsky goes in search of one of the greatest composers of all.

As with his two previous international hits (In Search of Mozart, In Search of Beethoven), Grabsky's biographical account of the life of Haydn is a visual and aural extravaganza, including breathtaking performances by some of the world's most celebrated musicians: Alison Balsom, Sir Roger Norrington, The Endellion String Quartet, Gianandrea Noseda, Ronald Brautigam, Christophe Rousset and Les Talens Lyriques, Emanuel Ax, The Classical Opera Company, Sophie Bevan, and The Orchestra of the 18th Century with Frans Brüggen, among others.

Through intimate and revealing interviews with experts, detailed extracts from personal accounts and beautiful location footage, Grabsky offers tremendous insight into not only Haydn's music but the man himself.
