Archaeometrie: 'n chemikus se beskouing van kulturele erfenis 'n chemikus se beskouing van kulturele erfenis<p>Prof. Dr. Peter Vandenabeele van Ghent Universiteit sal 'n openbare lesing gee oor "Archaeometrie: 'n chemikus se beskouing van kulturele erfenis". Archaeometrie gebruik analitiese tegnieke om kunswerke te ondersoek om bewaringsprojekte te ondersteun, of om vervalsings na te speur.</p><p>Meer oor Prof Dr Vandenabeele:<br><em>Peter Vandenabeele obtained his PhD in analytical chemistry in 2000, at Ghent University (Belgium), with research on the application of Raman spectroscopy and total-reflection X-ray fluorescence for the analysis of art objects. In 2007, he was appointed as professor in archaeometry at the faculty of Arts and Philosophy of the same university, where he became member of the department of Archaeology and associated member of the department of Chemistry (faculty of Sciences). His research mainly focusses on the development and optimisation of spectroscopic techniques for archaeometrical applications, with a focus on Raman spectroscopy. This includes the analysis of painted art objects as well as the development and use of mobile Raman instrumentation. He organised successful editions of international scientific conferences and authored many research papers and was guest-editor of several special issues of scientific journals. He also authored a handbook on Raman spectroscopy: Practical Raman Spectroscopy: an Introduction (J. Wiley, 2013), as well as several co-edited volumes. He teaches Natural Sciences and Archaeometry to archaeologists as well as chemists at Ghent University.​</em></p>
Monteverdi’s Vespers’s Vespers<p> <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">On 1 and 2 September, Schola Cantorum in collaboration with the Chamber Choir Lucente (Munich/Germany) and the SU Camerata on period instruments conducted by Martin Berger, bring Claudio Monteverdi's <em>Vespers</em> to the Endler Hall.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">This glorious Venetian masterpiece that bridged Renaissance and Baroque styles, is considered the grandest piece of religious music before Bach. Monteverdi can be thought of as a revolutionary, living at the end of one style period, and almost singlehandedly forging a new one through sheer force of will. He used the tools of the Renaissance, but created a new and intensely emotional form of expression, which we call Baroque.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The <em>Vespers</em> (“evening prayers") is a 90-minute piece for orchestra, chamber choir and vocal soloists, composed around Biblical texts — primarily the sensual love poetry from the <em>Songs of Solomon</em>. For these performances, solists include local and international singers: Caroline Nkwe, Lente Louw, Ulrike Malotta, Georg Poplutz, Christian Rathgeber and Felix Rathgeber.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">These concerts are presented with the kind support of the GOETHE Institute, ProCoroAfrika Foundation, and ASK Afrika.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The performances takes place on Saturday 1 September at 8pm and on Sunday 2 September at 4:30pm in the Endler Hall, Stellenbosch.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Tickets for R140 (regular) and R100 (students and pensioners) are available now through Computicket and at the door.

Mathematical structures and art: the case of MC Escher structures and art: the case of MC Escher<p>​The Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher (1898-1972) is famous for his images of impossible worlds and art based on repeating shapes. Although he claimed little formal understanding of Mathematics, his art is based on deep underlying mathematical ideas and structures which he grasped intuitively.<br></p><p>In this Science Café Stellenbosch talk, Florian Breuer will explain some of these surprising mathematical ideas which can be understood and appreciated by non-specialists.</p><h3>More about the speaker</h3><p><a href="">Prof Florian Breuer</a> is a mathematician in SU's Department of Mathematical Sciences. He works in Number Theory, more specifically Arithmetic Geometry where he focuses on Elliptic curves, Drinfeld modules, Drinfeld modular forms and related topics.  In his free time he is also an avid photographer.<br></p><p><span class="ms-rteStyle-Quote"> </span><a href=""><span class="ms-rteStyle-Quote">Science Café Stellenbosch</span></a><span class="ms-rteStyle-Quote"> is an initiative of SU’s Faculty of Science to promote the public discussion of science matters in a language that everyone can understand.

Monteverdi’s Vespers’s Vespers<p>​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Op 1 and 2 September sal die plaaslike Schola Cantorum, in samewerking met die Kamerkoor Lucente van München en die SU Camerata (met historiese instrumente) Claudio Monteverdi se <em>Vespers</em> in die Endlersaal aanbied. Die ensemble staan onder die leiding van Martin Berger. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Hierdie grootse werk uit Venesië is stilisties 'n skakel tussen die Renaissance en die Barok, en word allerweë beskou as die belangrikste religieuse musiek voor dié van Sebastian Bach. Monteverdi kan in eie reg gesien word as wat byna op eie houtjie die musiekstyl in 'n nuwe rigting gestuur het. Steeds met behulp van die middele eie aan die musikale Renaissance het hy 'n unieke klem op die emosionele uitdrukking deur middel van musiek geplaas, wat sedertdien bekend sou staan as Barok. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Die <em>Vespers</em> – die aandgebed van die daaglikse <em>Officium</em> – is 'n omvangryke werk (sowat 90 minute) vir orkes, kamerkoor en vokale soliste – en gebaseer op Bybeltekste, veral die sensuele poësie uit die <em>Hoogliedere</em> van Salomo. Die soliste vir die geleentheid is Caroline Nkwe, Lente Louw, Ulrike Malotta, Georg Poplutz, Christian Rathgeber en Felix Rathgeber.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Die uitvoerings word aangebied danksy die vriendelike ondersteuning van die Goethe Institut, die ProCoroAfrika Stigting en ASK Afrika.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Die uitvoerings vind plaas op Saterdag 1 September om 20:00 en op Sondag 2 September om 16:30 in die Endlersaal, Stellenbosch.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Kaartjies teen R140 (gewoon) en R100 (studente en pensioenarisse) is nou beskikbaar by Computicket, en by die deur.
