Holst: The Planets
The Planets align with NASA images on the big screen for the 100th anniversary of Holst’s sonic trip through the galaxy. Based in astrology, which enthralled Gustav Holst, each section is meant to capture the character of the planet. Also on the program is Debussy’s Nocturnes, meant to give “all the various impressions and the special effects of light that the word suggests,” according to the composer’s introduction.
