Holst The Planets conducted by Peter Oundjian
Holst’s mystical masterpiece — The Planets — offers an enchanting portrayal of Earth’s celestial neighbors. Listen as Holst draws on astrological traits and mythological nature to create seven unique scores that are both timeless and otherworldly — from the ominous, fierce, and remorseless Mars to the majestic and poignant beauty of Saturn. One-to-watch pianist Jan Lisiecki — who charmed audiences and critics alike during his last performance alongside your Colorado Symphony — brings the color and moods of Grieg’s Piano Concerto to life. Under the baton of guest conductor Peter Oundjian, Florence Price’s The Oak overflows with rich, vibrant texture, completing a blissful performance you'll need to see to believe.
