HOLST The Planets

Nick Davies Conductor

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Alongside classical works associated with space travel, Holst’s The Planets offers a range of musical highlights, from the brutal rhythms of Mars to the exuberance of Jupiter. Although originally inspired by astrology rather than visions of outer space, this music perfectly complements images of the solar system captured by NASA space probes. The footage has been transformed by award-winning producer/director Duncan Copp into a stunning HD film to be shown on a large screen above the stage.
