On this day in 1827

Unfortunately, just a trailer; the full-length documentary has again disappeared from YouTube but you may want to keep looking and get lucky again.


On this day in 1827, Ludwig van Beethoven died, aged 56. He's supposed to have said on his deathbed, "Plaudite, amici, comedia finita est" - "Applaud, my friends, the comedy is over".

The documentary "In Search Of Beethoven" digs deeper than the image of Beethoven's tortured, crabby and unhinged personality to reveal a very different and more interesting person. It brings together the worlds of leading Beethoven artists and experts to reveal new insights into this legendary composer. It is considered the best film ever made about Beethoven.
