Gustav Holst’s timeless, celestial classic.
From a dramatically building orchestra and choir through mercurial moments and a cheerfully epic romp, together with quieter, more magical reveals and ethereal choir with cosmic harps, Holst’s suite contains a universe of orchestral moods.
Pomp and Circumstance’s joyful orchestral march, Land of Hope and Glory’s rousing choir and the stirring Nimrod are the ultimate patriotic anthems.
A passionate Cello Concerto and Dukas’s dramatic, magical Sorcerer’s Apprentice complete this collection.
