Holst / Zubin Mehta / Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra - The Planets 180g 45 RPM Vinyl LP

Original Recordings Group ORG 122

Zubin Mehta conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra for this audiophile recording of Holst's The Planets. Mastered from the original tapes by Bernie Grundman and pressed at RTI, this sonically phenomenal reading of the legendary seven-movement orchestral suite is presented here in all its glory on limited edition 180g 45RPM 2LP!

"The scoring of the Planets is rich and extravagant (quadruple wood-wind, enormous brass and a percussion section requiring three players, not to mention such exotic additions as bass flute, bass tuba and organ) and yet the sound is always clear and transparent. There are two other ingredients to add to this formula, melodic invention and a great sense of rhythm. Holst had these in plenty. If his methods seemed novel during his life-time they have become commonplace since, but never dull.
