What happens when a composer, a scientist, a pianist, and an orchestra get together to make the planets of the solar system dance? The Carnival of the Planets is an educational, scientific, and musical project. Kepler's mysterious musical scales, dusted off by astrophysicist Laurent Eyer, are a series of musical notes associated with each planet of the solar system. Composer and EPFL alumnus Simón Prêcheur Llarena has created pieces for piano and orchestra. Compositions: Simón Prêcheur Llarena Astronomy presentations: Laurent Eyer Conductor: Eugène Carmona Piano: François-Xavier Poizat
