Roy Harris Symphony No 3 Speaker symbol

Holst Suite ‘The Planets’ Speaker symbol

Following Bernstein’s scintillatingly offbeat overture to Candide, we present an underrated masterpiece, Harris’ magnificently energetic, occasionally brooding yet always glorious (single-movement) Third Symphony. We follow this with the mercurial Holst's self-described ‘mood pictures’ – his Herculean tour de force, The Planets.
