Seattle Symphony

Holst the Planets

June 6–9, 2019
Benaroya Hall

Jeremy Ayres Fisher

From the symphony Joseph Haydn wrote to dazzle his British fans to the electrifying new voice of young Hannah Kendall, London has long been at the center of the orchestral world. No British composer cast his sights further than Gustav Holst, who gave us a rich-hued, mystical view of the solar system in The Planets. The celestial bodies display their true selves more clearly than any telescope could ever reveal.
