Do you think that some composers of classical music could also have been chemists or doctors? This concert will help us to understand how science, mathematics and technology are all part of a work’s aliveness and influence our emotions. Strauss, Saint-Saëns, Bach… there are as many composers as there are discoveries you would never have imagined!
