The Legacy of Karl Richter is filmmaker Tobias Richter's cinematic homage to his father, the legendary German-born orchestra conductor, harpsichordist and organist who died in 1981. A film collage in lieu of a straightforward documentary, Legacy packs the most compelling and impressive footage of Richter's musical accomplishments into a single program. Featured here are excerpts from St. John's Passion, St. Matthew's Passion, Georg Friedrich Handel's Music for Royal Fireworks, the B Minor Mass, The Brandenburg Concerto and the organ and harpsichord concertos.
