17 September at Royal Festival Hall, London
A mystery surrounds some of JS Bach’s seminal compositions.
Did Bach actually write the Cello Suites, the Aria from the Goldberg Variations or Prelude No.1 from The Well-Tempered Clavier?
The answer may be no. Evidence suggests that it could well have been Bach’s second wife, Anna Magdalena, who created these compositions.
The documentary Written by Mrs Bach – broadcast by BBC Four in March – explores this mystery, while celebrating the creative genius and loving partnership of this musical couple.
This live concert brings their story to life, and features Aled Jones and Myleene Klass, a full orchestra and guest soloists.
