Movie Reviews

Great instrument for promoting interest in children from a J
music lover, professional concert p | NY, NY | 10/19/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Our daughter loves to watch this video because it keeps her involved with a good story and gets the style of Bach's music into her ears. She now knows who Bach is and enjoys listening to his music outside of what's in this video. The point of these DVDs are to create curiosity, develop love of music, art and science while familiarizing children to important musicians, artists and scienctists. This way, children will not be intimidated by classical music, wonderful art, possibly get inspired to become more involved in science and innovations. We wish there are more!"
Good for introduction to Bach for beginner piano students

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video is filled with the music of Bach, plus presents a lively story involving a young boy who is Bach's helper. It is appropriate for children of all ages, but I believe particularly engaging for 7-12 year olds.

"Thank God I have this only on VHS.. Not only is the story completely untrue and fanciful, but the script and acting are just plain awful. Save your money and do not waste it on a DVD. This is not even rent-worthy."
My daughter really enjoyed it
Jagoda Urban-Klaehn | Idaho Falls, ID USA | 02/11/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It is a very good introduction of young kids to music and how people lived in Germany in the first half of XVIII century. My 9.5 years daughter really enjoyed it. It reminded her about story of Pilgrims coming to America.
Although the story was probably fictional it was interesting since it had one main topic and a moral dilemma. Who should a person be loyal to and what is more important - loyalty or passion.

I did not rate it with 5 stars since some parts of the movie were not consistent. In the beginning Bach is presented as an angry, almost violent man, then he is becoming a very understanding and even compromising, although he never compromises his music. Good action, nice costumes, I wish it was more factual and it talks more about Bach's music and his life in overall and less about a small boy who was so perfect and almost saved bach's freedom. But maybe this is a reason why children like it because they can identify with this small boy."
