Documentary "Bach: A Passionate Life" with John Eliot Gardiner

Author 501593
Message James Quandy
The renown English conductor, John Eliot Gardiner (click here for Wikipedia article on Mr. Gardiner), goes in search of Bach the man and the musician. The famous portrait of Bach portrays a grumpy 62-year-old man in a wig and formal coat, yet his greatest works were composed 20 years earlier in an almost unrivaled blaze of creativity. Mr. Gardiner reveals a convivial family man at the same time a rebellious spirit struggling with the hierarchies of state and church who wrote timeless music that is today known world-wide.
