Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Planets - Gustav Holst (includes bonus CD)

This stunning visualisation accompanies a highly-acclaimed performance of Gustav Holst’s suite by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Andrew Davis.

In this powerful statement of Holst’s vision, three elements are combined – Holst’s music, stunning photography of the planets, and eloquent visual images of Holst’s own interpretation of the astrological significance of each planet, as revealed in his subtitles:
MARS, the Bringer of War
VENUS, the Bringer of Peace
MERCURY, the Winged Messenger
JUPITER, the Bringer of Jollity
SATURN, the Bringer of Old Age
URANUS, the Magician
NEPTUNE, the Mystic
