Why See Los Angeles Philharmonic - The Planets with Dudamel?
as above, so below
One of the 20th Century's most enduring works of classical composition, Gustav Holst's seven-piece suite captures the imagination with its epic scope and tantalizing melodies. Join Dudamel as he leads the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a one-off performance of this cultural giant, with accompaniment from the Women of the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
Completed between 1914 and 1916, The Planets is bar bar the most popular of Holst's works (a fact that troubled him in later life). Based not around the Roman Gods as is easily assumed, each planet's character and sound comes from Astrology, an idea that fascinated Holst at the time. Each movement seeks to evoke the emotion and passion that each planet elicit in us.
