Notes & Reviews:

2016 markes 100 years since Gustav Holst completed his awe-inspiring space odyssey - The Planets. From menacing Mars to Jupiter's memorable, bold melody, The Planets remains one of the foremost achievements in 20th Century music composition and a firm concert audience favorite. Holst's score calls for a vast orchestra that includes an organ, two sets of timpani, an array of percussion with a wordless ethereal choir.
