GUSTAV HOLST – The Planets

This lavish visualisation of Gustav Holst’s orchestral masterpiece The Planets and Colin Matthews’ additional movement Pluto, the Renewer features spectacular images which enhance the symbolic meaning attributed to each planet by the composer. Directed by Rhodri Huw, this memorable audiovisual experience enthralled a massive TV audience with a spellbinding blend of images filmed in many locations around the world (including New Mexico, Arizona and Scandinavia), computer graphics, animatronics and a splendidly atmospheric performance by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
