Synopsis by Sarah Block
This video is another release from The Baby Einstein Company, a group that is dedicated to introducing cultural concepts to infants and very small children. Real-world toys and art are superimposed over sharp black-and-white backgrounds, then set to the strains of classical music, assisting parents or caregivers in teaching the baby about the images and concepts included on the video. Baby Bach introduces the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, the late 17th century composer whose works are often considered to be the most complex and mathematical ever written. Three sets of scales demonstrate timbre, the quality of sound that is unique to each musical instrument. Many of Bach's most popular pieces are featured in the program, including Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, Minuet in G, and the Goldberg Canons. Recommended for children one to 36 months old.
