Shortly after our kids came into the room and they were interested too, my daughter, who is eight, was completely still and afterwards watched the third disc, which had extras like deleted scenes, interviews and complete movements by the symphonies and concerto ensembles that performed pieces by the composers in the documentary. I feel my children learned about the lives of Beethoven and Mozart just as much as I did, and it was a great way to expose them to culture and music.
It is difficult to tell you more without exposing too many of the secrets of the documentaries In Search Of Beethoven & In Search Of Mozart. The DVD will be available be released May 31st. I would advise you to mark your calendar and get this informative DVD set.
