Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – The Mathematics of Decisions

Bach, the Universe & Everything

with Professor Samuel Cohen

JS Bach BWV 32

The Cantata
…is BWV 32 “Liebster Jesu”.  This is different from that advertised by King’s Place.

The Science
In this talk, Professor Samuel Cohen from the University of Oxford encourages us to reflect on our personal ambitions and ask ‘How can I be sure that tomorrow’s decisions will satisfy today’s objectives?’

This series of stimulating Sunday morning concerts reimagine a traditional Sunday service, which included a Bach cantata, communally sung chorales, and a stimulating sermon, or in this case: lecture. We explore the ambitions of humankind through talks from leading figures in the world of science and pair up with a Bach Cantata, for an hour of reflection, inspiration and enquiry.
