MSRI's Math + Music Series presents "The Art of Fugue" September 13, 2006 All Day
Parent Program: --
Description You are warmly invited to attend a special event that launches the "Mathematics + Music" series of concerts in the new Simons Auditorium, beginning with One is One and All Alone, three recitals of solo music by Bach. On Wednesday, Sept. 13, harpsichordist Davitt Moroney plays Bach's The Art of Fugue followed by a conversation on "Bach, Mathematics, Art and Music" with Bob Osserman, Davitt Moroney, and Elizabeth Harington.

Images from printmaker Elizabeth Harington's homage to Bach's masterpiece (see The Autographed version of Johann Sebastian Bach, The Art of Fugue (BWV1080)) will be shown during a reception with the artists, which begins at 5:30 pm in the Atrium of MSRI's Chern Hall. The recital starts at 6pm, which is followed by the conversation at 7pm. Free admission.

PLEASE NOTE: Parking in the lot between MSRI and the Space Sciences Lab is available--and free--starting at 5:00 PM on weekdays. The lot is reached from Centennial Drive by turning onto the "Gauss Way" access road that leads to MSRI / SSL. Disabled parking spaces are located at the entrance to MSRI's Chern Hall. Otherwise, parking in the Institute's terraced hillside lot (directly off Centennial Drive) requires walking up 95+ steps to the MSRI building.
