29 July 2004 | by (Nashotah, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

We used to watch these movies in music class when we had nothing to do. This one and the one for Handel, I think were my favorites. I have no idea how accurate this movie is but it was better watching this than singing "We Are the World" or playing ukulele. The Duke character was funny and I liked how they showed Bach as a family man too. The little kid was entertaining as were his mindless parents. I think this one had the best music out of all of them. I recommend also Handel's Last Chance, Rossini's Ghost, Beethoven Lives Upstairs and the movie about Liszt to all those that detest singing and playing instruments in music class. Overall, I give it a 7/10.
