The Jupiter section of The Planets is one of those rare pieces that exudes the best in the human spirit. Jovial, confident, playful, full of love and hope, it is the exact antithesis of the Mars segment as noted below..The brief part starting at 3:55 can bring tears to the eyes.....

Sorry, Pandora, this music (Mars, War). is too remindful of the World War III perils we are now facing; Gus painted a much too graphic musical scenario of what it might be like... I don't like it for that reason... +

On Pandora I have a channel which mixes Holtz and Mussorgsky in with the best progressive rock like Yes and Oldfield. They fit together remarkably well.

@masterlegob u i l d e r 1 4 6 You should look up Ottorino Respighi. His Roman Trilogy (The Pines of Rome, The Fountains of Rome and Roman Festivals) is probably the closest thing to Holst's Planets in classical music.

Love love love this composer. His works for symphonies are some of my favorites.

I like Holst very much but it is surprising that all I have heard on Burt Bacharach radio is British light music. Where is Burt Bacharach? Why is Pandora radio so mixed up? This happens often on most of the stations. Maybe I should cancel my subscription .

What about Hammersmith? I'm telling you guys, that piece will devour your soul.

A monumental 20th century piece. I have only heard bits and pieces of his other orchestral works. However, his reputation will always be great for this one great piece. I enjoy it immensely.

I wonder if John Williams drew inspiration from Holst. They both sound very similar.

I really wish my high school band was playing a Holst piece this year. Instead we're playing "Ride" by Samuel R. Hazo.

Would I be mistaken in thinking that a certain John Williams gained some inspiration for the music to a certain space opera from this?

Hearing the planets played by Tomita on an electronic keyboard is what led me to classical music in the 70's and is what I use to test or show off my speakers. The grandparent of all science fiction music.
