What is it that makes Stradivarius violins so special and unique?

And what does Newton’s Cradle have to do with Baroque music?

Find out in our concert, as Marcus du Sautoy, Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science at the University of Oxford, presents a fascinating programme delving into the relationship between the maths, science and music of the 17th century.

Directed by Music Director Marios Papadopoulos, this concert will be streamed for free on the Orchestra’s YouTube Channel, and is later available on demand. Reserve a free ticket in order to receive the link directly via email.
