Bach, the Universe & Everything

Bach, the Universe & Everything
The second series of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment's Bach, the Universe & Everything launches at Kings Place on Sunday 21 October 2018 with How to Leave the Planet. The series runs monthly and provides a unique combination of music and science with the performance of a Bach cantata and a scientific talk. 

On Sunday, 21 October, Dallas Campbell talks on the past and future of space travel, ending with the ‘Cavatina’ from Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat Major - the final track on the ‘Golden Record’ sent into space with the Voyager satellite. Audiences can mingle afterwards to discuss the science and music over coffee and cake, while enjoying interactive activities on the science of sound.

The Bach cantata performed is Cantata: Was soll ich aus dir machen (‘How shall I give thee up, Ephraim?’), BWV 89, with soloists Rowan Pierce, Clara Hendrick and James Newby, one which looks at the world from God's perspective.
