In Search of Chopin





Rating: TBC
Director: Phil Grabsky
Acclaimed director Phil Grabsky brings to the cinema and TV screens around the world the life and music of Fryderyk Chopin – one of the greatest composers of all time.

His 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, Phil Grabsky has travelled the globe in his quest to lay bare the life and music of Chopin.

By talking to acclaimed musical historians such as Jeremy Siepmann and bringing to the screen performances by such esteemed musicians as Leif Ove Andsnes, Lars Vogt, Daniel Barenboim, Ronald Brautigam and Kevin Kenner he hopes to answer those questions.

Renowned stage and screen star Juliet Stevenson provides narration. David Dawson brings life to the letters of Chopin himself.

Previous ‘In Search of...’ films have broken box office records in Australia, New Zealand and the USA and been huge critical successes.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN is the originator and market leader for bringing blockbuster art events from galleries around the world to cinemas. Intertwined with artist biographies and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the galleries, the films are informative, accessible and entertaining. Over the last three seasons they have been enjoyed by more than 1 million people in cinemas around the world. Most importantly, the films are shot for the big screen and offer an immersive, cinematic journey through the world’s most loved art and its creators. MICHELANGELO Love & Death To coincide with a glorious new exhibition at the National Gallery of London, this film offers a full and fresh biography of Michelangelo who, with Leonardo, is considered one of the greatest artists of the Renaissance – and perhaps of all time. This film explores his relationship with his contemporaries and his immense artistic practice which included painting, sculpture and architecture. Not least the universally adored David in Florence, the Sistine Chapel in Rome and the Manchester Madonna (today at the National Gallery). This major new film goes to the heart of just who was this tempestuous, passionate but much loved genius.
