Holst and Vaughan Williams: Lifelong Friends Reunited for a Night of Rebellious Music
From Led Zeppelin to Black Sabbath to Yes to King Crimson, Holst's The Planets has inspired countless musicians with its sweeping themes and astrological ideas. The suite became so popular in Holst's lifetime that the composer worried it was overshadowing all his other works. You can hear just why it has endured when the Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra performs the suite at Benaroya Hall, along with Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis. After meeting in their early 20s, Holst and Vaughan Williams become lifelong friends. They are reunited in this exciting program titled Heirs and Rebels, which also features a rare stateside performance of Vaughan Williams' Concerto for Piano and Orchestra.
