Mozart at Yerba Buena? What’s up with that? Despite the elitist stigma that hovers over classical music, it’s important to understand the Mozart was deeply liberal and progressive in his life and art. He was way, way ahead of his time. If Mozart were alive today, he might choose to live in San Francisco—where his ideas would be recognized and embraced.

In Search of Mozart is by far the most comprehensive film ever made about this genius. He is brought to life by an awesome array of stories, excerpts from letters, present-day locales and fascinating commentary. And, most importantly, the film is seamlessly interwoven with the music, with selections from over 70 works.

“A far more accurate, complete and endearingly human portrait of Mozart than any documentary has ever painted.” –Chicago Tribune
