The “greatest organist in all of Germany” suddenly dies, leaving his post vacant. In order to fill the position, the Leipzig city council invites a small number of musicians to audition for the appointment, including a young Johann Sebastian Bach. Based on actual events, Bach at Leipzig imagines with hilarious wit and uncommon intelligence how six little-known musicians resorted to bribery, blackmail, and betrayal in an attempt to secure the most coveted musical post in all of Europe. A six-part harmony of music and mayhem!
