The Planets influenced many recent composers including John Williams, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Howard Shore, and you can hear some of Holst’s influences in the music of
The Lord of the Rings and
The Gladiator. This program explores the ageless, timeless mystery of the planets through music and high definition imagery – from the associations with ancient gods to
The Planets’ powerful cinematic sound. It’s nothing short of epic!
