The Iron Lady and Bach

Posted by on Thu, Feb 9, 2012 at 1:15 PM

The Iron Lady only has two things going for it: one, of course, is Meryl Streep's performance; two, it ends with one of the most beautiful and perfect pieces of music ever composed, Bach's "Prelude in C Major."

Andras Schiff version of the prelude stands, for me, above all other versions.

The prelude is also in Patricia Rozema's White Room, her medicore followup to the art house classic I've Heard the Mermaids Singing, which featured Delibes' "The Flower Duet."
