Notes and Editorial Reviews

The LSO made the first recording of Holst's masterpiece with the composer himself conducting. Here Sir Colin Davis gives a blazing performance of one of the most astonishing and popular works of the 20th century.

"Colin Davis, as might be expected, has no problems, conjuring like Uranus the Magician, the full panoply of atmosphere, stillness and energy from the virtuoso LSO." -- Daily Telegraph
