Burke/Jang/Rosenblum/Vali/Williams: The Elements

(PSO commission/world premiere)

Holst: The Planets  

About This Performance

Manfred Honeck leads the PSO in a celebration of Pittsburgh composers.  Five composers representing different Pittsburgh universities contribute a movement to the world premiere of this five-part PSO commission inspired by archaic elements such as earth, water, air, fire, and metal. NASA video footage of the planets accompanies this performance of The Planets.  From bellicose Mars to mystical Neptune, Holst's iconic musical portrayal of the planets and their astrological significance has delighted audiences with its richly-colored orchestration and memorable melodies.
