Holst Suite Planets Jupiter

G. Holst Suite Planets Jupiter – for 12 horns and percussion

29.99 incl. VAT


The Planets, Op. 32, is a seven-movement orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst, written between 1914 and 1916. Each movement of the suite is named after a planet of the solar system and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst.

From its premiere to the present day, the suite has been enduringly popular, influential, widely performed and frequently recorded. The work was not heard in a complete public performance, however, until some years after it was completed. The first complete public performance was finally given in London by Albert Coates conducting the London Symphony Orchestra on 15 November 1920.

4th movement, ‘Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity’ is the centrepoint of the suite. Especially famous is the middle section of the movement.
