Harding Conducts 'The Planets'

Presented by San Francisco Symphony

One English conductor plus two English composers equal any Anglophile’s dream program. Ralph Vaughan Williams’s song cycle On Wenlock Edge transports us to a green and pleasant land full of chiming church bells and forlorn farmhands. Gustav Holst’s The Planets launches the pastoral tradition into the extraterrestrial realm, conjuring up the star signs with otherworldly sounds and a wordless offstage women's choir.
