Susanna Mälkki and the Planets by Holst

Susanna Mälkki and the Planets by Holst


Maison symphonique de Montréal

From the warlike power of “Mars” to the impressionism of “Neptune” through the infinite lyricism of “Venus,” Gustav Holst’s The Planets remains a great classic of symphonic literature, masterfully endowing each planet with its own musical atmosphere. A testament to humanity’s timeless fascination with the spheres, this symphonic epic takes on galactic proportions under the magical baton of Finnish conductor Susanna Mälkki.
