Mr. Bach Comes To Call
From The Children's Group
The Classical Kids series makes dramatic tales come to life through the magic of the world's greatest composers. Each title focuses on the interaction between a famous composer and a young child. By combining historical facts relevant to the composer's life with a child's perspective, the series explores not only classical music, but the real life attributes, eccentricities, and genius of the composers.
Mr. Bach, along with his magic orchestra and choir, drops in to visit Elizabeth as she reluctantly practices the piano. In a lively and touching conversation, she learns about Bach's life and his music. Includes: Jesu, Joy Of Man's Desiring, Air for the G-String, Brandenberg Concertos, Orchestral Suites, Flute Sonatas, Goldberg Variations, Art of Fugue, Organ Chorales and pieces which Bach wrote specifically for children.
The special DVD bonus features include a music gallery with more than 50 minutes of music from the award-winning and best-selling Classical Kids® series, selected music audio only excerpts from the film, and selected activities and sample pages from Classical Kids® Mr. Bach Comes To Call Teacher's Notes.
