GUSTAV HOLST: The Planets
Written between 1914-1916, Holst's ‘The Planets’ represents all the known planets of the Solar System seen from Earth at the time, and their corresponding astrological character. From its premiere to the present day, the suite has been enduringly popular, influential, widely performed and frequently recorded. The concept of the work is astrological rather than astronomical: each movement is intended to convey ideas and emotions associated with the influence of the planets on the psyche, not the Roman deities.
