From its first ominously pulsing drum beat to the ethereal slow fade out of the final movement, Holst’s The Planets is a hugely popular and exciting orchestral suite. Written in haste between Holst’s service in WWI, it was finally premiered after the armistice. The first half features the lost and recently republished Norfolk Rhapsody No 2 by Vaughan Williams, never before heard at the festival despite being written over a century ago, and a festival co-commission by Hannah Kendall. This all-English programme is conducted by Elim Chan, who made a critically acclaimed debut with the Philharmonia last year.
