Holst The Planets

Whether it’s the raw power of Mars or the stirring melodies of Jupiter, everyone has their favourite bit of The Planets. But Holst’s masterpiece is much more than just a great British classic – it’s a journey to the outer limits of the human spirit, and no-one conducts it with more charisma or style than John Wilson. As for Bruch’s First Violin Concerto: its status as one of the nation's best-loved pieces of classical music speaks for itself.
