Warsaw, Saint Petersburg, Vienna, Paris, Milan, Venice… This fourteen-part series crisscrosses the continent in the footsteps of fourteen of the world’s greatest classical music composers (Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Bizet, Berlioz, Puccini, Mahler, Offenbach, Liszt, Mozart, Massenet & Rossini).

At each stop, a musician or historian serves as our guide to the great composers’ public and private lives. Fourteen different directors blend interviews with narration, archive materials and musical sequences to paint fourteen intimate portraits.
