Since their birth in the Enlightenment, institutions such as the British Museum have been devoted to the ideal of gathering human knowledge.

At this closing discussion, Artistic Director of the Festival Daniel Kühnel, members of the Arditti Quartet, acclaimed Indian classical vocalist Kaushiki Chakraborty, and Emma Dillon, Professor of Music at King's College London, explore this idea in the context of music, and the role of musical knowledge in a broader history of humanity.
