Documentary of John Eliot Gardiner
Fascinating BBC documentary, starring the well-known English conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner. Directed in 2013, it coincided with the launch of J.E. Gardiner’s famous book on Bach, Music in the Castle of Heaven.
Thus, the documentary is an accurate biography that aims to show both the most human face of the composer and his struggle against the State and the Church’s hierarchies in order to accomplish his art.
In compliance with the current health and safety regulations, the Bachcelona Festival and partner entities will take all necessary prevention measures in the organization of the concerts.
