Holst The Planets (selections)
Chief Conductor Designate Jaime Martín leads the MSO and Melbourne Youth Orchestra in a special collaborative concert. Enjoy two symphonic showstoppers as the MSO performs side by side with the next generation of orchestral musicians.
Ravel’s Boléro, instantly recognisable thanks to its distinct rhythm, is the perfect showcase as it builds throughout, adding all the instruments and colours of the orchestra as it goes.
Then, four epic movements from Holst's The Planets: the thrilling Mars, the sublime Venus, the playful Mercury, and ending with the infinitely cheerful Jupiter.
