instructive/educational documentaries, movies and masterclasses about music

Do you guys know any of those, i would be very grateful if you name them.
It doesnt have to be about pino only. Music in general is also most welcome.

On western music generally (though there's an episode devoted to piano), I'd recommend Howard Goodall's Big Bangs.

Daniel Barenboim's series of masterclasses on Beethoven sonatas is well worth a look.

Simon Rattle's Leaving Home: Orchestral Music in the 20th Century is excellent, if a bit pricey.

If you do a google search and type in " In search of ..." in the dots put in a composer and there are dvds on the lives of different composers

Or do a search " great composers dvd" and you there will be some good ones also mainly on the lives of the composers

If your a die hard bach fan check this one out. its very informative.
