Mr. Bach Comes to Call
The story begins with the dramatic take-off of Bach's music into space aboard Voyager II. We then are taken into the living room of 8-year-old Elizabeth who is reluctantly practicing the well-known Minuet in G+. Mr. Bach appears to discuss and reminisce about his life and his music. In a lively and touching conversation, we learn about his life...his 20 children, his sojourn in prison, Anna Magdalena, and his music. Over two dozen of Bach's best-loved pieces stream through the recording, including Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Air for the G-String, the Brandenberg Concertos and Orchestral Suites, the Flute Sonatas, the Goldberg Variations, the Art of Fugue, Organ Chorales and pieces which Bach wrote specifically for children.
