Everyone has their favourite bit of Holst’s The Planets, whether it’s the thundering rhythms of Mars or the majesty of Jupiter. But Holst’s masterpiece isn’t just about great tunes. Tonight, James Feddeck takes us to infinity and beyond, and joins two American masters on their own voyages to new worlds: Leonard Bernstein’s hardhitting movie score for the young Marlon Brando, and the UK premiere of Aaron Jay Kernis’s beautiful new work for horn. This is musical history in the making. Few living composers have more to say– or say it in such vibrant colour.
