Strange new worlds… Holst’s Planets Suite isn’t just famous for great tunes like Jupiter and Mars; it’s a musical odyssey to infinity and beyond, filled with sounds of jaw-dropping strangeness and beauty. It’ll be a dazzling showcase for the CBSO’s superb young principal guest conductor Edward Gardner – and he’ll be our guide on two more fantastic journeys: Szymanowski’s ravishing Stabat Mater written in the 1920s, and the sensuous oriental dreamscape of Dukas’s La Péri, part of our celebration of the year 1912.
The CBSO’s Bequest Patrons’ Reception takes place before this concert. For information about leaving a legacy, please call Eve Smith on 0121 616 6533.
