Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – Schooled by Randomness

Bach, the Universe & Everything

JS Bach Cantata, O Ewigkeit, Du Donnerwort BWV 60

with Tim Harford OBE, economist and journalist

The Music:
This cantata is a dialogue between fear (reinforced by the horn) and hope (the tenor); a fitting accompaniment to a talk about the mental journey from being derailed by a challenge to feeling creatively inspired.

The Science:
There has been a mistake. The venue has provided the wrong piano. The black notes are sticking, the white notes are out of tune, the pedals don’t work and the instrument itself is just too small. What do you do? How do you overcome the problem?
Tim Harford talks about how random obstacles and frustrations can inspire us to be more creative.
