This unique biographical twist on Johann Sebastian Bach's life chooses to focus on his musical achievements instead of his private life. Classical virtuoso Gustav Leonhardt plays Bach in his only performance as an actor, while narration is provided by Christiane Lang, who plays Bach's wife, Anna. While a few events in Bach's life seep into the narrative, THE CHRONICLE OF ANNA MAGDALENA mostly offers viewers the opportunity to bask in the glow of the great composer's music, with Leonhardt providing some fine interpretations of his works throughout.
