Ross Petty in Bach's Fight for Freedom

Bach's Fight for Freedom

1995 NR

This drama illustrates composer Johann Sebastian Bach's (Ted Dykstra) gallant battle for his right to make groundbreaking music, even as he faces pressure from his patron, the powerful Duke Wilhelm Ernst (Eric Peterson), to create pieces only for the organ. Inspired by Frederick Muller (Kyle Labine), a servant at Ernst's home who dreams of becoming a stone mason, Bach stands his ground, fighting not just for himself but for artists everywhere.
