  • Holst Sāvitri35′
  • Holst The Planets48′

We are sorry to announce that Sarah Connolly will not be performing in this concert due to illness. We are grateful to Yvonne Howard for taking her place at short notice.

Everyone knows Mars and Jupiter – and it’s true, Holst’s The Planets is one of the most thrilling orchestral showpieces of the twentieth century. But it’s also a fantastic musical voyage to infinity and beyond, drenched in mystery and inspired by Holst’s fascination with Indian philosophy. So Holst’s haunting miniature opera Sāvitri – an ancient Indian tale of a love stronger than death – will make an inspired companion-piece.

Part of The Spirit of England.
