Ye Old Schickele Shoppe’s DVD’s page lists several DVD’s featuring the music of Peter Schickele or P.D.Q. Bach, all of which are available for sale through this Web site. However, Mr. Schickele also contributed to other video projects that are only available on other Web sites. The most recent of these is Bach and Friends, described below.
|Peter Schickele joins Joshua Bell, Bobby McFerrin,
Edgar Meyer, Philip Glass, Hilary Hahn, Béla Fleck, Chris Thile,
Manuel Barrueco and the Emerson String Quartet in a new two-hour
documentary on Johann Sebastian Bach — the most influential composer
in history. A wide array of terrific Bach players share their
innermost thoughts and personal reflections on the power and genius
of Bach’s music and perform his greatest masterpieces. Mr.
Schickele’s interview include some discussion on J.S. Bach’s last
and least son, including scenes from a performance of P.D.Q. Bach’s
The Only Piece Ever Written for Violin and Tuba.
The 2-DVD set from Michael Lawrence Films includes a bonus DVD of complete performances from the film — featuring Joshua Bell’s only recorded performance of the Chaconne and many other performances of music by J.S. Bach (though not the P.D.Q. Bach work).
