The Four Seasons
From the dawn of humanity, the ever-changing seasons have sustained, fascinated and challenged us: their annual rhythm inspiring musicians, artists and scientists to reflect on the human condition.
In this illustrated talk, Professor Brian Cox will discuss the seasons, why they happen, what they mean, and the more fundamental concepts of how time passes. These reflections will be mirrored by soloist Jack Liebeck and friends in a performance of the most famous musical evocation, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. Join Brian, Jack and friends for an evening of fascinating facts, insights and images, united by wonderful music.
