Classical music

Debussy Images pour orchestre: Gigues and Rondes de printemps
Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo Theme
Holst The Planets

 

Holst was fascinated by astrology, and in 1913 wrote to a friend: ‘Recently the character of each planet suggested lots to me’. The result is astonishingly vivid music for each of the human traits embodied by each planet’s namesake deity – war, peace, jollity, old age – before the ultimate fade-out into the infinite. This piece has justly been a favourite from its first performance.

Another favourite is the wonderful cellist Li-Wei Qin, who returns to the APO for Tchaikovsky’s elegant homage to the Baroque. Bookending Holst’s brilliant orchestral painting is Debussy’s sumptuous Images, intoxicating from the first bars.

Li-Wei Qin’s performance is supported by the Templar Family Office.
