Join the London Philharmonic Orchestra for a musical journey through the solar system; Holst's "Planets."

Holst's celestial masterwork is the composer's most beloved work. Inspired by a discussion about astrology, Holst used our solar system as a structure for his great orchestral suite, giving each planet a unique character. The resulting multi-movement masterpiece is a dazzling journey of emotion, imagination, and mysticism. In this concert, Edward Gardner leads the LPO and the London Youth Choir in an electric performance of this popular suite.

1. Mars, the Bringer of War
2. Venus, the Bringer of Peace
3. Mercury, the Winged Messenger
4. Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
5. Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
6. Uranus, the Magician
7. Neptune, the Mystic
