Chicago Symphony Orchestra: Jupiter from Holst's 'The Planets'

submitted by mozart on 06/30/18 1

This year marks the centennial of Holst’s The Planets, a seven-movement orchestral suite, which the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs May 26-31 under guest conductor Cristian Măcelaru. In this video, the CSO performs the work’s fourth movement, “Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity,” full of brass fanfares and fireworks. One of the most popular classical music works of the last century, The Planets received its U.S. premiere by the CSO on New Year’s Eve 1920, just a month after the work had its world premiere in London. The CSO is revisiting The Planets as part of its season-long retrospective titled “A Legacy of Premieres,” in which the orchestra on nearly every 2015-16 subscription program will perform many of the works introduced over its 125-year history.
