Even the ancient Greeks believed that the movements of the celestial bodies create a harmony of the spheres that has an influence on the human soul. In his seven-movement programme music The Planets, Gustav Holst took up mythological ideas people had about the planets: from the warlike Mars to the dissolute pleasure of Jupiter.

Before that, you will experience the Basel debut of the American string trio Time for Three, TF3 for short. The American composer Kevin Puts imagined that the refrain of his concerto for TF3 and orchestra could be a message sent into space, containing references to our DNA, to our nature as earthlings.
