Beethoven's hair( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documentary. Traces the unlikely journey of a lock of hair cut from Beethoven's corpse and unravels the mystery of his tortured life and death. Begins in modern times when a pair of Beethoven enthusiasts, Ira F. Brilliant, founder of the Beethoven Center, and Arizona doctor Alfredo "Che" Guevara, purchase the hair at a Sotheby's auction. As the story unfolds, it follows the past generations of owners, culminating in the futuristic science that reveals Beethoven's "medical secret." Set to a score of some of Beethoven's best-known music, explores the world of forensic testing against the romance of 19th century Vienna and the horrors of 20th century Nazi Germany. Tells the story of characters separated by time and place, whose only connection is an odd relic that touched each of their lives. Suggests that the cause of Beethoven's various maladies, including his deafness, might have been lead poisoning, as well as accounting for his volatile personality and perhaps even the nature of his art. With commentary by Brilliant and Guevara
