Description

Planets / Somerset Rhapsody / Pluto on CD

Planets / Somerset Rhapsody / Pluto, Nars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Somerset Rhapsody Holst (composer) Matthews (Artist) Gustav Holst composed "The Planets" 1914-1916 well before the discovery of Pluto in 1930; though he lived until 1934, he felt no desire to extend his seven-movement suite to include a new piece devoted to it. However, at the urging of conductor Kent Nagano, composer and Holst scholar Colin Matthews has created an optional eighth movement - "Pluto, the Renewer" ; to close out the work. His completion of Holst's tour of the solar system may make sense to the astronomically and astrologically minded, but artistically, it's value is debatable. With Holst's ending, "Neptune, the Mystic," the cycle ends with an eerie, unresolved fade-out that is lovely in expression.
