Bach Der Herr denket an uns (The Lord hath been mindful of us) BWV 196

Dr Vicky Neale Whitehead Lecturer at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford

The Beauty of Mathematics

The science: You’ve heard that some people find mathematics as beautiful as Bach’s music, but you’re not really sure why. Dr Vicky Neale is here to convince you it is, as she explores the intoxicating mysteries of prime numbers and how they push the limits of human understanding.

The music: This is one of Bach’s first cantatas, written when he was in his early twenties for a friend’s wedding. It features a striking soprano aria, and an overall theme of ‘partnership’, with two factions of instruments uniting to become one.

In partnership with Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford
