For those who know me, you may have heard me talk about the Michael Lawerence film documentary, Bach and Friends. B&F is an in-depth look at the music of J.S. Bach, by musicians. And, what a list of musicians are included! From Bela Fleck to Bobby McFarrin… Edgar Meyer to Joshua Bell. As a musician-type (hardly would call myself a musician), hearing the meaning of Bach’s music explained by these virtuosos is awe-inspiring. Also, their performances are worth the price of the DVD alone. Do yourself a favor and order a DVD OR, if you are feeling generous, pick up a copy of the DVD for your local library, school, etc. It is a gem.
Of course my favorite scene, as you could probably guess, is the classical guitar of Manuel Barrueco. http://www.mlfilms.com/productions/bach_project/manuel_barrueco
Michael is seeking donors for a PBS presentation of the B&F documentary. I would like to see a major network pick it up! But, alas… hopefully a donor will step up! and provide the funding for the nationwide broadcast.
