Notes & Reviews:

In his informative booklet note, the composer Colin Matthews examines the origins of 'The Planets', which many people erroneously assume to be Gustav Holst's only work. In fact, when he began to think about composing 'The Planets' in 1913, Holst was nearly 40 and 'had already achieved recognition as a composer, even if he had not yet found a truly individual voice'.
