Einstein's Universe brings together Einstein's favourite instrument, the violin and many of the concepts of modern physics that he did so much to found.
The performance begins with an introduction to Einstein's life involvement with music and how his ideas have shaped our concepts of space, time and the evolution of the Universe.
These slides are accompanied by music from J.S. Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin, some of Einstein's favourite music.
The lecture is punctuated by other interludes of music related to Einstein. Suitable for a general audience.
