This is a children’s cassette tape
in which Johann Sebastian Bach
(know to her as Mr. Bach) visits a little girl who happens to be having trouble practicing the piano (a well known Bach Prelude
). He tells her his life story
(of his many many children and picnics and being in prison, among others), why he wrote music
, that the piano used to have an ‘H’ on it (he could thus spell out his name) and any other things; most importantly, that every time someone plays his music, he is alive again. He will always be with us so long as people play his music. He visits her with his boys’ choir
and has them play music throughout the tape.
It is very well put together, one of my cherished childhood things, along with Beethoven Lives Upstairs and The Magic Flute.
