Synopsis From a rag-bag of materials (letters, clerical paperwork, manuscripts, obituaries, music sheets), the film approaches the reconstruction of Bach's musical biography, stressing generally forgotten aspects by usual biopics, such as the live shooting and recording of performances which become the most substantial part of the film. That way, the artist's creative work reaches what Straub called the marxist dimension of the work by means of the direct capture and the full effort of human work.
