           Franz Joseph Haydn documentary.

Interesting documentary which concentrates on Haydn’s visits to London, the people he met such as Herschel (who discovered Uranus through his new telescope) and discussions of his music. They show his last home (now a museum) and his beautiful Walter fortepiano. In addition they show some clips of live performances of his symphonies like The Surprise and The Creation.
