The Planets – Jupiter

| Posted in Music

The Planets is a seven-movement orchestral suite by the English composer Gustav Holst, written between 1914 and 1916. Each movement of the suite is named after a planet of the solar system and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst.

In 2016, a flashmob from the Berklee Contemporary Symphonic Orchestra assembled to perform Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity.
