Snipped from a review by IMDb user [color=#0000ff]Stephanie Cowell:
[quote]In Search of Mozart is an utterly fascinating documentary which brings the brilliant, sometimes tragic, bawdy and all too human composer to life. Using a combination of his letters read evocatively by leading actors, hundreds of musical clips of orchestras and singers, interviews with scholars and musicians, as well as present day footage of the very long roads he traveled (he was on tour about 1/3 of the days of his short life), Mozart becomes as real as if he sat down to dinner with you.[/quote]
Snipped from [color=#0000ff]BFI:
[quote]Feature-length documentary film, also transmitted on British television as a three-part series at the same time as its first theatrical release in January 2006 as part of the Mozart year celebrations. [/quote]
Narrated by Juliet Stevenson.

Note: Unfortunately this was a bit of a drive-by capture; I only caught the third and final part of this trilogy of documentaries, which are all derived from the full-length movie described by BFI above. I do not have parts one and two. Besides someone having and uploading the other parts, the promo site has a link to buy the DVD if you're really desperate to see the whole thing.
This third documentary still functions well as a standalone production focused on the last years of Mozart's life, attempting to disprove the belief that he died a pauper.
