‘The Genius of Mozart’ recreates the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s (1756–1791). Charles Hazlewood, a popular composer and presenter brings an insightful, educational dimension to this historically accurate docudrama. The story begins with the Mozart’s father Leopold with whom Mozart had a zealous and tortured correspondence.

Mozart’s music and his inspiration behind them are given a predominant place in this film. It shows how music helped Mozart unlock his emotions and shed all inhibitions and restrictions of the mind. The first great phase of Mozart’s brief life was that of the travelling child prodigy – gifted as a performer and writer of music – who grew into the genius who, working within the restrictions of his time, began to rewrite the musical rules and transformed the face of the music industry as we know it today.

The film also focuses upon a lesser known facet of Mozart – the adult thinker aware of the bigger picture, who was keenly attached to the progressive values of the Enlightenment. He was impressively well-read, a speaker of most European languages, an Austrian Catholic, a Freemason and above all a composer at the height of his powers, determined to succeed in the most challenging and worthwhile area of all – The Opera.
