National Philharmonic Chorale
Piotr Gajewski, conductor

Debussy - La Mer
Host - The Planets

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.
