Gustav Holst (1874 - 1934) was an unusual character: a vegetarian, Hindu inspired, Socialist, English composer who constantly enthrals. 2018 will mark the centenary of the first public performance of his Planets Suite in 1918 at the Queen’s Hall in London under the direction of Adrian Boult. Join Amelia Marriette, previously curator of the Holst Birthplace Museum, as we explore the music of this intriguing man, illustrated with rare photographs and musical extracts.
