Microcinema released a special DVD boxed set of the music-filled documentary films In Search Of Mozartand In Search Of Beethoven on May 31, 2011.

The Mozart/Beethoven DVD package carries a list price of $64.95; the previously released In Search Of Mozart DVD and In Search Of Beethoven DVD are still available individually for a list price of $39.99 each.

The two film movies were directed by filmmaker Phil Grabsky and each take a comprehensive look at their respected composer’s life through his musical output. Grabsky documents each piece of music chronologically, placing it in context alongside the composer’s life and letters.

Produced in association with the world’s leading orchestras, opera houses and musicians, In Search Of Mozart (2009) and In Search Of Beethoven (2010) are told through a 25,000-mile journey along every route Mozart and Beethoven followed.

The documentaries are narrated by Juliet Stevenson (Triage) and feature contributions by such artists as Ronald Brautigam, Renée Fleming, Magdalena Koená, Louis Langrée, Julian Rachlin, Roger Norrington, Imogen Cooper, Skampa Quartet, Orchestra of the 18th Century, the Salzburg Camerata and many other leading musicians, performers, and Beethoven and Mozart experts.

Bonus features in the package clock in at 100 minutes and include complete movements, a look at the editing process, deleted scenes and an interview with the director.
