Holst's The Planets

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

Thomas Adès conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in Holst’s stunning astrological suite.

When a great composer conducts music by someone else, something special happens – as two creative spirits react, respond, and strike sparks off each other.

We can’t wait to hear Adès’ interpretation of The Planets: after all, there’s a profound philosophy behind those glorious tunes and all that dazzling orchestral colour.

Sibelius’ atmospheric nightscape is an old favourite of Adès’, but only he and dedicatee Kirill Gerstein really know what to expect in his brand new Piano Concerto – set to be one of the biggest premieres in the UK this year.

Experience musical history as it’s made: this performance should be definitive.
