The star-studded cast of musicians — including Joshua Bell, Bobby McFerrin, Philip Glass, Béla Fleck, Chris Thile, Hilary Hahn, Zuill Bailey, Matt Haimovitz, Edgar Meyer (and many more) — provide personal reflections of the composer’s genius and perform his greatest masterpieces. The result is uplifting and inspirational — a must-see film for anyone who loves music!

Just a few high points: The young organist playing the D-major Fugue and watching his feet dancing across the pedal keyboard; pianists John Bayless and Anatoly Larkin in a grand dueling duet improvising on themes of Bach; Ward Swingle rehearsing the current incarnation of the Swingle Singers (makes you wanna go "baba dabadaba").

Thanks to everyone that came out for BACH & friends last night. The response to the film was fantastic. Quite a few people asked about buying DVDs to share with friends (we sold out of our limited stock in a flash).

The DVD is available for purchase at Michael Lawrence's BACH & friends page:

Thanks again for a great night :)
