Bach, the Universe and Everything: Music & Maths in Oxford

Image result for music at oxford

‘When we see images of the strange mathematical beasts lurking at the heart of the natural world – fractal landscapes, the Fibonacci series, the strange attractors that beat at the heart of chaos – it is always the dizzying spirals of Bach that come to mind.’ Douglas Adams

Fresh from two successful seasons in London, Bach, the Universe and Everything visits Oxford for three dates in partnership with the University of Oxford’s Mathematical Institute.  Bach was known for being a ‘mathematical’ composer’, with intricate structures and symmetries in his music reflecting deep truths about the universe.

To explore this, each concert mixes some of Bach’s greatest music and a ground-breaking talk from a leading figure from the world of mathematics.  With a bit of communal singing and conversation, it’s a place where you can bond with music lovers and unravel the mysteries of our universe.

‘For over 30 years the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment has combined highbrow musicology with a tremendous sense of mischief ‘ New Scientist

CONCERTS:

  • BACH, THE UNIVERSE & EVERYTHING | MATHEMATICS AND THE BRAIN

    13 OCT 2019
  • BACH, THE UNIVERSE & EVERYTHING | THE CREATIVITY CODE

    01 DEC 2019
