Spitalfields Music Festival banner

J.S. Bach is sometimes described as the mathematician's musician. But why is that?

James Sparks is a professional mathematician here in Oxford; but he was also an organ scholar as an undergraduate in Cambridge and he is fascinated by the mathematical aspect of Bach's work.

On June 30th James will open the Spitalfields Music Festival 2022 with a talk on the 'Mathematical Genius of Bach'. He will be followed by the City of London Sinfonia playing the Goldberg Variations where that genius reaches its apogee.
