Mr. Bach, a magic orchestra and boys' choir surprise young Elizabeth as she practices at the piano.

The series' premiere recording opens with the launch of Bach's music into space aboard the Voyager II spacecraft. Mr. Bach magically arrives and reminisces about his life and music; his twenty children, his time in jail and his devotion to the church.

Not until the very end does he reveal the reason for his visit, "Every time my music is played... I am alive."

More than 28 musical excerpts include Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, Brandenburg Concerto #5, Air on the G-string, Flute Sonatas and Badinerie, Goldberg Variations, minuets and preludes, organ music and Cantata #78.
