Holst: The Planets

The Planets became one of the most popular and widely recognized musical works of the twentieth century. Holst himself conducted the LSO in two early recordings of his masterpiece. Sir Colin Davis's blazing performance, recorded over three evenings in June 2002, was one of the classical releases of the year.
