Based on ancient astrology, Holst’s orchestral suite The Planets paints each deity as both human and otherworldly, with flaws, virtues, and fantastic traits. Listen for Mars' quick temper, Jupiter's jovial dance, and Venus' serene tranquility. The program also features pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet performing Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 2.
