Summary
Set in 1717, and featuring music from the well-loved "Brandenburg Concertos," and other selections, including "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," this historical drama tells a story about the positive power of ambition. It focuses on a temperamental, demanding composer and a free-thinking servant boy, both of whom feel like prisoners of circumstance. The last thing Frederick (Kyle Labine) wants to be when he grows up is a servant like his mother (Rosemary Dunsmore) and father (Ian D. Clark), who meekly labor for the duke at his castle in Weimar. Frederick aspires to be a stonemason. Meanwhile, Johann Sebastian Bach (Ted Dykstra) is terribly frustrated by being pigeonholed as the court organist. He wants to be allowed to compose the glorious music that springs forth irrepressibly in his mind. After Frederick is ordered to become Bach's assistant, Bach is jailed for insubordination. Both of their futures seem bleak indeed. Eventually, though, they come to understand the essence of genius when opportunity knocks, follow your dream with persistence and fortitude and you will triumph.
