Howdy. On this blog you’ll find my list of recommended recordings of Gustav Holst’s The Planets, in order of preference.
What’s on the list:
- All available recordings on CD of the full orchestral suite of Those Planets.
What’s not on the list:
- Single movements.
- Versions of Them Planets other than the orchestral one, such as the two-piano version, a one-piano-four-hands version, an organ version, a version for brass quintet and organ, the synthesiser version by Tomita, the prog rock version called Beyond The Planets etc.
