NEW RELEASE IN MARCH - A LONG FORGOTTEN MASTERPIECE

KEN RUSSELL'S VIEW OF THE PLANETS (109168 / 109169)


The Planets
by Gustav Holst is one of the best-loved twentiethcentury pieces by a British composer. Ken Russell has taken a brilliant performance of this work, with Eugene Ormandy conducting The Philadelphia Orchestra, and illustrated The Planets with passages from a mass of documentary material. In this film from 1983 he presents his visual interpretation of Holst’s music. Written in seven movements, each describes the character of a planet: Mars – forceful and assertive; Venus – love of all things beautiful; Mercury – eloquent; Jupiter – buoyant and hopeful; Saturn – enduring; Uranus – eccentric and unexpected; and Neptune – subtle and mysterious. Russell’s view of The Planets is provocative, stimulating, inventive, entertaining and wonderfully watch-able.
