Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – The Beauty of Mathematics

Bach, the Universe & Everything

Bach Cantata: Der Herr denket an uns (‘The Lord hath been mindful of us’) BWV196

With Dr Vicky Neale, Whitehead Lecturer at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford

The science: You’ve heard that some people find mathematics as beautiful as Bach’s music, but you’re not really sure why. Dr Vicky Neale is here to convince you it is, as she explores the intoxicating mysteries of prime numbers and how they push the limits of human understanding.

The music: This is one of Bach’s first cantatas, written when he was in his early twenties for a friend’s wedding. It features a striking soprano aria, and an overall theme of ‘partnership’, with two factions of instruments uniting to become one.


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.
