HOLST The Planets

Nick Davies Conductor

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra


Holst’s seven-movement orchestral suite The Planets, completed exactly a century ago, has become one of the best-loved and most evocative works in all of classical music. Now it is vividly brought to life through the accompaniment of Duncan Copp’s extraordinary film. Featuring spectacular photography and moving images from NASA, the film uses material sent back by the Voyager, Mars Rover and other space missions, as well as interviews with members of the space mission before the music begins.
