Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – The Undiscovered Universe: Take What is Yours and Go Away

Bach, the Universe & Everything

JS Bach BWV 144: Nimm, was dein ist, und gehe hin (‘Take what is yours and go away.’)

The Music:
Cantata BWV 144 tells of the labourers from St Matthew’s Gospel who feel that they have been underpaid. It begins with a merciless fugue: don’t complain and go away. Lest there was any confusion, Bach goes on to features the figure ‘gehe hin’ (go away) a whopping sixty times in this piece. Hint taken.

The Science:
CRISPR is the new technique in biomedical science that allows us to effectively cut out and fix glitches in our genes. The science is still pretty new, and some might say that advancements in gene-editing is controversial. In this talk we have the opportunity to learn more about the science behind the technique, and to make up our own mind.
