These six 20-minute films, part documentary and part performance documentation, repair the complete lack of art films capturing them in performance, just in time for their three hundred birthday in 2020. In addition to merging Bach’s monumental compositions with the lyrical sweep of the his handwriting, these linked documentaries will bring the viewer to the castle in Köthen where Bach wrote and performed the sonatas and partitas, and describe in plain language the unsurpassed musical and technical innovation they represent.
