Notes & Reviews:

Holst's 'The Planets' received its first public performace in 1919, and with it Holst achieved the first real success of his career. The new eigth movement, 'Pluto', was commissioned from Colin Mattews. This movement serves an an 'appendix' to the Suite, the planet Pluto having been discovered only a few years before Holst's death. "It's the most impressive performance of 'The Planets' I've heard for quite a while." -BBC Music Magazine
