Bach Revealed: the healing power of music and science

Friday, January 24th 2014, 7:30pm

Matthew Barley Bach

A lively and engaging evening to look closely at why Bach’s works for solo cello are so extraordinary. Bach’s music has a purity and directness that has ensured global popularity three centuries after it was composed. Matthew will talk through some of the nuts and bolts of how it works as pure music, and also relate it to the healing properties of music that fascinated ancient Greeks and Chinese. Two complete Bach suites will be performed, as well as a piece of Gabrielli and some improvisation.

Drinks at the bar with wine sponsored by HOMA.
