A life of a musical genius

On a recent Brisbane-LA flight I watch the documentary In search of Haydn.
(This review in The Age is fair).
It is a little dry at points and at times could have benefited from more music rather than just experts talking about Haydn. They highlight that The Creation was in some respects a culmination of his career. They also claim it is an Enlightenment apologetic something I think is overstated.
