On Saturday 27 January 2018, Marios Papadopoulos and the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra are joined by Oxford University Professor of Mathematics, Marcus du Sautoy, at the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford, for an exploration of the role of mathematics in celebrated scores of Mozart, Beethoven and Haydn. 

The orchestra will be playing Mozart's Overture to Die Zauberflöte, K. 620, Haydn's Symphony No. 47 in G major, Hob. I:47, 'Palindrome' and Beethoven's Symphony No.7 in A major, Op. 92. Whilst Marcus du Sautoy will be giving a multi-media lecture highlighting the hidden patterns and numerical blueprints which underlie the music.

Full details from the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra's website, though the website informs us that the concert has sold out.
