Alexander Shelley conductor
Women of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Chorus
Mozart Symphony No.41 Jupiter
Holst The Planets
Through movies as diverse as Paradise Road and The Right Stuff, the music of The Planets has permeated our culture. Holst’s spectacular astrological journey is one of the most popular of all orchestral works, from the menacing tread of Mars, the Bringer of War to the final movement, Neptune, the Mystic, in which we seem to be adrift in a world of stars and ice. Under dynamic young British conductor Alexander Shelley, this compelling program opens with Mozart’s final, sublime symphony.
