Bach & Khayyam

Constantinople with Hana Blazikova, soprano present music by Johann-Sebastian Bach (1685 -1750) and the Persian poetry of Omar Khayyam (1048 -1131). These two geniuses were made to meet each other. Their deep spirituality and visions of the world through a mathematical lens are developed here into a delightful dialogue which traces a clear path to the sublime. 
Dir. by Kiya Tabassian
