His finest films such as "Women in Love", "The Music Lovers", and "The Devils" are milestones in cinema history. Classical music is a passion of his and for the first time in these 'novel biographies' he focuses a literary rather than camera lens on the private lives of Beethoven, Brahms, Elgar, and Delius - with no holds barred!

Although he is remembered for the rock opera "Tommy" and recently directed an innovative production of "Madam Butterfly," Russell started out making drama documentaries on the lives of the great composers for the BBC series "Monitor" in the late 1950s and early 1960s."
