Default Classical Music On Film


I thought a thread dedicated to full feature length films about classical music might be apropos as, well, I watch a lot them. If you're aware of any (especially free streamers in high quality) please post them! Amadeus isn't likely to be hanging around for free but there are all kinds of long form classical films that people might appreciate. Recommendations on pay sites and/or cinema experiences are great to hear as well. Share them!

This one actually inspired the thread. It's been up and down on YouTube for years. Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet's 1968 film, The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach includes a rough sketch of J.S. Bach's life but features actors/musicians in complete ensembles playing period instruments. The full performances make the film. Up until very recently the film, spoken and sung in German, was put up without English subs. The edition below has subs and an English dub (granted, not especially polished). It's a static/anti-kinetic often cramped experience yet oddly unforgettable.

Hopefully fictional modern classical musicians performing terroristic compositions counts

Nice. More free-form (and a lot shorter) than I like but pretty cool.

The best of the Phil Grabsky In Search of... series (imo). The anniversary commemorates the 250th year of his birth.

At this point the music of George and Ira Gershwin are certainly classic, if not "classical" in the dead European men sense.

George Gershwin Remembered (1985)
