Discover how CERN and the Large Hadron Collider will guide us on a journey to the heart of matter; with music by Bach, Mozart and Kreisler.

Linking Einstein’s favourite instrument, the violin, with many of the concepts of modern physics that he did so much to found, this physics lecture is punctuated by interludes of music related to Einstein. Discussion also centres on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva. Considered a technological marvel, teams of scientists from around the world are working on this machine and hope that among other outcomes they might be able to reconstruct the conditions of the Big Bang.

Prof Brian Foster is currently Head of the Dept. of Particle Physics, University of Oxford. Jack Liebeck is Artistic Director of the Oxford May Music Festival and has established a reputation as one of Europe’s most exciting young violinists. He plays the “Ex-Wilhelmj” violin made in 1785 by G.B. Guadagnini.

The Museum's Columbus Cafe is open from 5.30pm. Access is via the Southern Museum entrance.

Sponsored by the Royal Society of New Zealand • The University of Auckland, Physics Department and in association with the Auckland Museum Institute, the Auckland Branch of the Royal Society of New Zealand.
