Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – Mathematics and the Brain

Bach, the Universe & Everything

Bach Cantata: Ach, ich sehe, itzt, da ich zur Hochzeit gehe (‘Ah, I see, now as I go to the marriage’), BWV162

With Professor Alain Goriely, Statutory Professor of Mathematical Modelling, University of Oxford

The science: Can mathematics explain the brain? No-one is entirely sure, but Professor Alain Goriely definitely thinks it’s worth trying. He explores how applied mathematics can help us learn more about the effect of brain injuries and neuro-degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

The music: In this cantata, Bach imagines going to a wedding, although he’s initially concerned with the pre-marital angst of the participants, rather than having a party. It’s all resolved by the end, however, with a journey from doubt to certainty and a celebratory final chorale.


Bach, the Universe and Everything is Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s very own Sunday service for inquiring and curious minds; a place to bond with music lovers and revel in the wonders of science.
