"The Planets" by Gustav Holst
« on: August 19, 2011, 04:39:25 pm »
The Planets is easily my favorite piece of music.  And it's not just because it's about the planets.  It's because it's well written, well thought out and well orchestrated.  Each one makes you wish you were playing in the orchestra--and paints a picture as if you were watching a ballet

I know that  a lot of people like the Jupiter part the best.  My favorite is Saturn followed by Mars. 









There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

Personally, I like Jupiter the best.  :)

I had the pleasure of seeing these performed live once, and I loved it.  Ah, the memories.

Speaking of Holst that's been played, I've also played some of his:  I played his "First Suite for Military Band in Eb" and "Second Suite for Military Band in F," both which are amazing pieces in their own right.
