Mathematics in Music: Pythagoras's String
Add this event to your Google Calendar.
Now the ancient Greeks too... The name Pythagoras is a familiar one to high school students, but what relatively few people know is that he was responsible for more than simply one of the theorems of Euclidian geometry. His contemporaries referred to the great pre-Socratic thinker as the "father of numbers", for in his view mathematics were the most important science. His ideas enjoyed a millenium-long career. On this occasion, following his teachings, our experts will talk about the numerical connections found in medieval vocal and instrumental music and illustrate them by playing them as well.
Before the performance, between 9.45 and 10.30, we will be running a free (and playful) interactive session for children entitled Tune-up. We look forward to welcoming both school groups and individual school-age youngsters attending the subsequent performance. Please register via email@example.com by midnight on the Wednesday before the performance, specifying the number of participating children and their ages. The activity is recommended for children aged 6 and over, and will take place with a minimum of six children.
