Holst's The Planets


GEMMA NEW conducts OLGA KERN piano WOMEN OF DALLAS SYMPHONY CHORUS ANGÉLICA NEGRÓN What Keeps Me Awake RACHMANINOFF Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini HOLST The Planets What Keeps Me Awake, a probing and wandering soundscape by Puerto Rican-born Angélica Negrón, DSO's Composer-in-Residence, opens the program. A perfect complement to Holst's searching epic, this mesmerizing and effusive work brims with invigorating emotion. What Keeps Me Awake is followed by Rachmaninoff's piano concerto-esque work, Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The program concludes with another popular classic. From the mighty Mars to the cinematic Jupiter, Holst's The Planets has inspired sci-fi movie music for generations - most famously, Oscar winner John Williams's The Imperial March from Star Wars.
