Add this event to your Google Calendar.
Listeners can find many things to be impressed by in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach: the irresistible rhythmic energy, the extraordinarily expressive harmonies and the zigzagging patterns of the independently moving parts. But beneath the surface of Bach's music we find another world that is at least as fascinating, and it is the aim of this lecture by musicologist Gergely Fazekas to guide the listener there. It attempts to show how Bach mapped the universe of music with the attitude of a true scientist, one similar to that of the great intellectuals of the time: Newton and Leibniz.
