Music and Maths - Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra


Balance and geometry were vital tools for Igor Stravinsky, whose Symphony in C is a work of utter mathematical sense – lucidly scored, enchantingly varied, and gloriously symmetrical.

But the mathematics doesn’t stop there, as du Sautoy, Papadopoulos and the Orchestra turn their analytical gaze towards haunting Bartók and impressionistic Debussy. 

Join us for a fascinating evening with music and insight from University of Oxford Professor, Marcus du Sautoy.
