Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach

1968 Rated NR 1hr 33m

Musical talent does not always translate into great riches or fame. Told through the eyes of Johann Sebastian Bach's widow (Christiane Lang), this biopic recounts the life of the composer, a genius perennially in search of royal patrons and greater recognition. But the real focus of the film is the music; included are extracts from 25 Bach compositions such as the Brandenburg Concerto no. 5 and Sonata no. 2 in D Major for Viola and Harpsichord.
