- Edward Gardner conductor
- London Youth Choir
Everyone has their favourite moment of Holst’s The Planets, whether it’s the warlike rhythms of ‘Mars’, the radiant calm of ‘Venus’, or the melody and majesty of ‘Jupiter’.
But Holst’s masterpiece is a lot more than just magical colours and unforgettable tunes – just as Dvořák’s Cello Concerto is more than merely a magnificent showcase for one of the world’s greatest cellists. Today, cellist Nicolas Altstaedt sings songs of longing and loss, and Edward Gardner takes the LPO on a voyage beyond time and space to the outer limits of the human spirit. Familiar masterpieces made startlingly new and fresh.
New release coming to Marquee TV on 18 May 2024. The concert will be free to stream for 48 hours and will then be added to the LPO catalogue, available to Marquee TV subscribers.
