BBC’s Great Composers: Bach
John Goodman, lecturer and Music Archives Film showing
Thursday, November 16 – 2:00 p.m.
Selby Public Library – Geldbart Auditorium (Free, ticket required)
A truly exceptional 1-hour documentary, from 1997 and produced by the BBC, on the composer Johann Sebastian Bach. Kenneth Branaugh narrates the program, which is full of great musicians, musicologists and even the theologian Karen Armstrong (since the religious component of Bach’s music is critical). The documentary is compiled from 7 formerly individual YouTube videos.
