Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Holst's suite 'The Planets' has long been one of the most popular orchestral works ever written and is familiar to even the beginning classical listener. Less familiar is the other work included on this well-filled CD. Holst composed the comic opera 'The Perfect Fool' between 1918 and 1922. He had carried the piece around fully worked out the completed 'in his head' for some considerable time before it was committed to paper.
