Well worth a watch. - In Search of Chopin review by DW

Spoiler Alert
23/10/2018

This proved to be a much more interesting watch than I had expected. Quite often biographical portraits of composers are superficial and sentimental, particularly when the music, as here, is heartrendingly beautiful.

Instead, whilst the story of Chopin's life is well documented here, we are also presented with an intelligent and extremely well-informed analyisis of Chopin's music by musicians such as Daniel Barenboim, Leif Ove Adnes and many more pianists expert in the theory, practice and interpretation of playing this gorgeous music.
