The Planets, MAY 2-4

Friday, May 2, 2025 7:30PM Sunday, May 4, 2025 1:00PM
Holst the Planets with the Colorado Symphony
Holst The Planets

Description

Holst’s cosmic masterpiece — The Planets — offers an enchanting portrayal of Earth’s celestial neighbors. Listen as Holst draws on astrological traits and mythological nature to create seven unique scores that are both timeless and otherworldly — from the ominous, fierce, and remorseless Mars to the majestic and poignant beauty of Saturn — taking listeners on a musical journey through our solar system.

Hear this timeless classic alongside Brahms’ Schicksalslied “Song of Destiny” featuring the Colorado Symphony Chorus in a piece that expresses the profound chasm between gods and people and contrasts the happy and sheltered existence of the former to the hardships endured by the latter. Ravel’s La Valse, poeme choregraphique, and Valerie Coleman’s Fanfare for Uncommon Times round out a weekend of music offering an eclectic array of old and new led by guest conductor Eric Jacobsen.
