Living Bach

The film Living Bach by German filmmaker Anna Schmidt embarks on a journey across six continents, delving into the lives of musicians and singers, who are in one or many ways, profoundly connected to Johann Sebastian Bach's music. All across the globe, individuals of diverse cultures, religions, and backgrounds unite under the spell of Bach's compositions. Through striking visuals and the enchanting sounds of Bach's music, the film reveals the extraordinary relationships these enthusiasts have with his timeless work, showcasing how Bach's music brings joy, comfort, hope, and understanding to people worldwide. This tapestry of diverse voices in the film also celebrates the strength of diversity and the enduring magic of Bach's music that resonates across the globe. The film recently won Best Documentary at the Madrid Film Festival, and is set to be screened right here in Kuala Lumpur, at the end of this month. We find out more about the film from Anna, and also two Malaysian musicians and Bach enthusiasts Lee Hai Lin (Violinist, Founding Member, Wicked Music People) and Dr. David Chin (Founder and Artistic Director of Bachfest Malaysia, Director of the Bach Collegium and Music Professor at Augustana University in Sioux (SOO) Falls, South Dakota, Senior Fellow of the Bach Archive in Leipzig, Germany) who were also featured in the film.
