I can't recommend these four videos strongly enough. Amazing musical discoveries, terrific musical performances, beautiful architecture, gorgeous countrysides, all narrated by very brilliant violinist/ conductor.

The only minor thing that irked me is when one of the musicians says "Do you know this piece?". The answer is always yes and then they begin to play it. Of course, much of the action is scripted.

Some of the best music documentaries I have ever seen. Many thanks for posting.

They really help one understand the composer, where their inspiration came from, who they inspired and the music and culture of the period.

Fascinating stuff.

I second that! Amazing work! I wish they'd cover Chopin now! smile


If your work speaks for itself, then perhaps don't interrupt it?

Hey, I just watched my first one from the series last week and intended to go to the rest. Well done. I have weaknesses and holes in these areas, so it's perfect!

It's actually surprising how little documentaries we have on youtube on composers. I mean, theres a few but it's time that they needed a revamp.

There's a brilliant movie/documentary on Beethoven, The Genius of Beethoven I think it's called? There's also a fantastic documentary on Satie. Brilliant night time stuff and perfect for bed id say!

Well, there have quite a number of excellent ones over the years, made by Christopher Nupen, among others - on Mozart, Sibelius, Rachmaninov etc - for the BBC and Channel 4 (UK), and most of them are on YT.

Here are two on Rach:

Sibelius:

Many more where all that came from...... wink

Thanks Bennevis! It's a bit of a minefield looking through you tube sometimes. Never know what you'll find
