Catalogue number HIQLP003

This classic recording is from the golden era of Andre Previn and the London Symphony Orchestra. Early in 1914, Gustav Holt told a friend: "As a rule I only study things that suggest music to me...Recently the character of each planet suggested lots to me." This marked the beginning of the composition of his biggest orchestral work, a suite of seven movements. The first to be sketched was Mars - prophetically, for the First World War began just as he completed it. The order of the composition of the remainder was Venus and Jupiter in the autumn of 1914, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune during 1915 and Mercury in 1916. The orchestration of the complete work was also finished in 1916.

  Mars, the Bringer of War
  Venus, the Bringer of Peace
  Mercury, the Winged Messenger
  Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity
  Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age
  Uranus, the Magician
  Neptune, the Mystic
