Directed by the filmmaking duo of Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, The Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach is a portrait of composer Johann Sebastion in which the serene visuals of the film are juxtaposed with spoken text drawn from manuscripts of the composer. The film, a music lover’s dream with music performed by harpsichordist Gustav Leonhardt and other musicians on period instruments, covers the years of Bach’s life from his marriage to Anna Magdalena to his death in 1750.
