Celebrate this year’s BBC Music Magazine Awards with your bumper free playlist on iTunes
This month at BBC Music Magazine we’re celebrating Holst’s The Planets Suite and for your free playlist on iTunes we’ve selected the best recording of each of the Planets: from ‘Jupiter – the bringer of jollity’ to ‘Neptune – the mystic’ to create the perfect Planets Suite.
Simon Rattle and the Philharmonia Orchestra lead the way with ‘Mars’ before we turn to Charles Mackerras and the RLPO for their performance of ‘Venus’. ‘Mercury’ is in the hands of Adrian Boult and the LPO and we stick with Boult for ‘Jupiter’ too.
‘Saturn – the Bringer of old age’, is from a recording by George Hurst and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra; and ‘Uranus’ is from the RPO and Vernon Handley. Finally, we return to Simon Rattle – this time with the Berlin Philharmonic – for ‘Neptune’.
Pick up a copy of the June issue of BBC Music Magazine to read about Holst’s The Planets, his other great works and much more.
