Bach, the Universe & Everything - Astronomy and Poetry

Kings Place, Hall One, N1 9AG , [Venue Details]

This is a concert series with a difference. Across six Sunday morning events, we explore the human desire to understand our place in the cosmos, guided by the work of JS Bach – composer and intergalactic genius.

Bach’s Cantata BWV 155 is an enigmatic cantata for the season following Epiphany that seeks to find hope in a dark world.

That theme extends into Jocelyn Bell Burnell’s talk where she will explore the poetic beauty we can find in the vastness of the universe. Constantly pioneering, her discovery of pulsar stars in 1967 changed the course of astrophysics.

Jocelyn is currently Visiting Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Oxford and recipient of the 2021 Copley Medal.
