The Planets is an orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst, written between 1914 and 1917. Each of the suite's seven movement is named after a planet of the Solar System. Earth and Pluto were not included in the piece. Although Pluto was discovered and named a planet in 1930, and Holst lived until 1934, he had no interest in adding a movement. The piece had become so popular that it overshadowed his other music.
We will visit the planets of our solar system and hear recorded music from The Planets.
There have been many recordings of The Planets and it is a popular piece for orchestras to perform, including the Juneau Symphony.
