“Phil Grabsky completes an admirable trilogy with this riveting study of Haydn.”

“Part of the success of the film lies in just talking to very intelligent and authoritative people – musicians, conductors, historians – and letting them have their say, simple as that. These commentators give the film a real IQ-vitamin boost; it’s a bracing and refreshing experience.”
