The Planets Beyond Holst

About this playlist

Although astrology rather than astronomy informed Gustav Holst's most famous work, The Planets remains an indisputable landmark of repertoire exploring humankind's fascination with the world beyond our own. Many composers before and since Holst have taken inspiration from the night sky, creating wonderfully descriptive music about all aspects of the universe, from the sun and various moons, asteroids and telescopes, as well as wondrous stories of space exploration and life - real and imagined - throughout the universe.
