Biography

Gustav Holst, of Scandinavian ancestry on his father’s side, was born in the English spa town of Cheltenham in 1874 and studied music at the Royal College in London, using his second study, the trombone, to provide an income. He later became director of music at St Paul’s Girls’ School, retaining this connection until the end of his life. His music had a variable reception in ... Read more in Amazon's Gustav Holst Store

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent package 16 May 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While neither performance would be my numero uno pick, both come fairly close. I love both of these works; combined with Delos' usual outstanding sonics, one could do far, far worse. My favorite "Planets" remain Boult's final LPO one (1979, EMI); Previn/LSO (EMI), and Levi/Atlanta S.O. (Telarc). But Litton runs them close. Same holds for "Zarathustra". There, my favorites would include Bohm/BPO; Karajan/BPO; Steinberg/Boston (also coupled with The Planets, by the way) - all on DG. But again, Litton runs them close, and with generally better sound quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding performance!! 26 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent recording by an excellent orchestra. I was there for the recording of "The Planets" and it was wonderful. Wayne Marshall, though showcased more thoroughly in an earlier piece in that performance, is one of the most gifted organists that I have ever heard and on the beautiful Lay Family Organ in the Dallas Meyerson Symphony Center he sounds better than ever. This recording is an excellent reproduction of the real thing and the Dallas symphony sounds superb on both pieces. Well worth the price!
