An NCPA Presentation

Holst: The Planets

In this series of talks on Western classical music, Dr. Cavas Bilimoria takes listeners through musical concepts, the lives of composers and their famous works, sprinkled with examples of recorded music. The first set of talks this month will take you through the astronomical soundscape of British composer Gustav Holst’s composition, The Planets. Each of the seven movements in the orchestral suite takes the name of a planet and its metaphorical character—from Mars, the Roman God of war to the mystical Neptune.


Entry free
Admission on a first-come-first-served basis.
