About this Performance

Each planet in Holst’s stirring suite of orchestral portraits takes its character from astrological descriptions, giving it a distinct, highly colorful profile, from the frighteningly war-bent Mars to the mysterious, ethereal Neptune. Our Principal Guest Conductor also shares a new concerto for flute and bass by Felipe Lara, a Brazilian-born composer based in Jersey City.
