Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – In Praise of Peptides

Bach, the Universe & Everything

with Dr Louise Walport (The Francis Crick Institute & Imperial College, London)

JS Bach Cantata, BWV 192: Nun danket alle Gott (‘Now thank ye all our God’)

The Music:
We are grateful to return to Kings Place for another season of Bach, the Universe and Everything, and so we begin with a cantata about giving thanks. Today’s performance also marks 504 years to the day that Martin Luther began the reformation by nailing his theses to the church door, so we can thank him that we’re singing in German this morning, and not Latin.

The Science: 
Dr Louise Walport enlightens us on how peptides are helping us in the battle to develop new medicines against difficult disease targets.

Date & start time:Sun 31 Oct 2021 – 11.30am
Venue:Hall One
