Description:

J.S. Bach is, almost unarguably, one of the three most important and famous Classical composers of all time. The German genius lived a quiet, unturbulent life during which he produced not only over 1,000 compositions, but also twenty children. The father of Baroque music, Bach wrote pieces of gorgeous symmetry, which were performed most often in church and royal court settings. HIS MUSIC HIS LIFE is a sort of musical biography of this great musician, and centers around performances of Bach's organ compositions by Dr. Andrzej Zahorski. The Stanford University Music professor plays on restored vintage organs in Warsaw, Poland's beautiful St. Ann Cathedral. In addition, anecdotes about Bach's life are told as photos and videos evoke his world. Finally, additional music for harpsichord, orchestra, and a ballet interpretation are included.
