Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
This 1966 German film offers a nearly 2 1/2-hour selection of the music of Wolfgang Mozart (1756-1791). English narration provided by Hugh Burden recalls the events in the life of the gifted composer. From religious music and operas, to simple songs, chamber music and symphonies, a generous cross-section of Mozart's work provides the novice listener with a good overview. The uniformly fine performances are unfortunately not always listed in the film's credits.
