National Philharmonic Chorale
Piotr Gajewski, conductor
Cosmic imagery is used to great effect in one of the greatest masterpieces
of the orchestral repertoire. Gustav Holst’s
The Planets creates a powerful musical astrological chart as it takes the audience
on a space voyage teeming with intriguing sonorities. The broad canvas of
The Planets is juxtaposed with Debussy’s symphonic poem
La Mer, undoubtedly the greatest depiction of the power and shifting moods of
the mighty ocean. From Holst’s interspatial fantasy to a musical
celebration of the beautiful and terrifying power of the sea, this concert
features two of the most enduring works of the 20th century.
For Young People.
