Bach's Music Launched into Space
Mr. Bach, a magic orchestra and boys' choir surprise young Elizabeth as he practices at the piano. The series' premiere recording opens with the launch of Bach's music into space aboard the Voyager II spacecraft. Mr. Bach magically arrives and reminisces about his life and music, his 20 children, his time in jail and his devotion to the church. Not until the very end does he reveal the reason for his visit, "Every time my music is played... I am alive."

28-plus Musical Excerpts
More than 28 musical excerpts include Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Brandenburg Concerto #5, Air on the G-string, Flute Sonatas and Badinerie, Goldberg Variations, minuets and preludes, organ music and Cantata #78.

Our Favorite in the Series May 31, 2012
Reviewer: 6 in the House  
What a fun way to learn about composers! Our family especially enjoyed Mr. Bach Comes to Call. The excerpts and stories from his life and his passion for music was clearly conveyed. And it was helpful to have pieces of his music woven throughout the story. My favorite part is where Bach explains to his young listener the importance of practice and repetition. Now, whenever my kids are weary of their time on the piano we can all remember the words of Mr. Bach, and they're right back to it!

Fun to listen to! October 26, 2010
Reviewer: Carrie Anne from Maine  
Like all the other CD's in this series, this CD does a great job introducing young children to classical music.  Using excerpts of Bach's greatest works interspersed with an intriguing story makes a painless way to teach music history and appreciation.  Favorites of our family, we enjoy listening to these stories regularly and recommend them enthusiastically.  This particular story, like the Beethoven one, has also been made into a short movie.
