The Planets, Op. 32

Harmonies of the Universe

A pre-cursor to his Ninth Symphony, Beethoven’s sparkling 1808 Choral Fantasy for piano, vocal soloists, chorus and orchestra is a poetic tribute to the divine power of music. We are joined by Malaysian piano wunderkind Tengku Irfan in this sunlit gem. Ascend beyond the firmaments in Holst’s universally loved classic, The Planets, an awe-inspiring orchestral extravaganza that’s a guaranteed eye-opening experience for any listener.
