Holst: The Planets – An HD Odyssey
As our 2018/19 Classics series ends, embark on an expansive voyage through the Solar System with The Planets: An HD Odyssey. Propelled by Holst’s masterwork The Planets, this bracing multimedia experience explores the astrological and emotional influences of our sister planets through this large-scale orchestral suite as stunning NASA and Hubble image are projected above the orchestra. Sir Edward Elgar’s serene and dreamlike Elegy for Strings opens the program, while Michael Hersch’s tragic, personal, and deeply compelling end stages, accompanied by the artwork that inspired the composer, presents an interdisciplinary exploration of mortality to close the program.
