The reasons for Holst’s relative neglect, beyond The Planets and the Band Suites, aren’t hard to fathom. He wrote no large works in conventional forms, and never repeated himself. Even the Choral Symphony on poetry by Keats, here in its finest recorded performance to date (by Boult), owes very little to precedent–Mahler’s Eighth and Elgar’s The Black Knight, perhaps–and in any case features Holst’s personal combination of “spacey” orchestral color and rhythmic complexity (sample below). The music is both personal, technically virtuosic, and however beautiful somewhat cool emotionally. There is nothing else quite like it in the early 20th century.

Gustav Holst's "The Planets" is a brilliant portrayal of the other celestial bodies outside of Earth (except for Pluto because it wasn't discovered back when Holst composed this). Mars is violent and in a military march form. Parts of it have the brassy dominating sound resembling that of Darth Vader's theme. Venus sounds like something out of a black-and-white romantic movie, high lush strings, celesta, french horn and all, a personal favorite. Mercury is a very playful sounding piece, strong emphasis on the woodwinds and strings. Jupiter is definately my favorite…

Although best remembered for his devotion to the core Austro-Germanic repertoire, Austrian conductor Herbert von Karajan did flirt with the English repertoire in the '50s and early '60s.

This version of Holst’s endearing masterpiece, “The Planets”, sounds very good in Naxos’ super audio 5.1 technology. I do not have the point one (subwoofer) hooked up in my house and assume, by listening to the recording in 5.0, that the timpani — which are already very powerful and forward placed — would be explosive if you listened in 5.1. The sound is very good otherwise, with wide ranging and natural orchestral body and timbre. It is not the best super audio sound I’ve heard but it is good and a big improvement over the stereo sound on the last version of “The Planets” I purchased, the one Berlin Philharmonic and Simon Rattle released last year.

The Planets, composed between 1914 and 1916, is a suite of seven movements. Holst's starting point for the music was the astrological character of each planet, though his interest in astrology went no deeper than its musical suggestiveness…

Helena Tholstrup è una celebrità. Di origine danese, a capo dell'Opera di Berlino, la donna ha un'unica figlia, Sophie, della quale si è occupata pochissimo, preferendo dedicarsi interamente al lavoro. La sera in cui le viene conferito un prestigioso premio alla carriera, arriva anche la ragazza, che vive a Copenaghen, accompagnata dal fidanzato, un musulmano di nome Khalil. Helena è sorpresa e imbarazzata, in realtà non ha mai saputo gestire il difficile rapporto con la figlia, ma ciò che proprio non si aspetta è che Khalil la prenda in ostaggio insieme a Sophie, minacciando di ucciderla se non chiederà pubblicamente scusa ai musulmani per avere autorizzato in un'opera un riferimento blasfemo a Maometto.

Recorded in 1973, this is widely considered one of the great Planets. Previn is outstanding here; he's not going after effects, he's making all the pieces fit together.
Early in 1914, Gustav Holst told a friend: "As a rule I only study things that suggest music to me…Recently the character of each planet suggested lots to me". This marked the beginning of the composition of his biggest orchestral work, a suite of seven movements. The first to be sketched was Mars - prophetically, for the First World War began just as he completed it. The order of the composition of the remainder was Venus and Jupiter in the autumn of 1914, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune during 1915 and Mercury in 1916. The orchestration of the complete work was also finished in 1916.

"Planets" - a documentary film by Ken Russell with the music of composer Gustav Holst in the performance of the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra.
Collage assembled from fragments of films, newsreels and advertisements from around the world and covers a wide period of time. Russell has received special permission from the composer's daughter, where she set a condition not to use pictures that show the atrocities of war. Therefore, we can only imagine what would be the choice of masters for the first theme: Mars.
The film is completely devoid of narration and voice acting, but his musical arrangement, which is based on the plot, the narrative has the same meaning as the video sequence, and, in fact, creates the atmosphere.
This is very unusual, stunning film was undeservedly forgotten. Want to believe that better quality video would be available soon …
In this orchestral suite of 7 pieces. Each planet of the solar system (except Earth and Pluto) is devoted to his own plays, which, in principle, quite distinct (ie it can be executed and obeyed and separately).
