Notes & Reviews:

Gibson's performance of 'The Planets' was a famous demonstration CD on its initial release, being both the first digital recording of this work and the first available CD. It remains sonically spectacular and is paired together with 'Brook Green Suite 8' and the 'St. Paul's Suite'.

The Penguin Complete Guide
In every respect this latest Holst anthology from Chandos will be hard to beat. The recording is superb - very real indeed...
