World renowned MultiPiano Ensemble and Tremolo Percussion Ensemble collaborate in an intergalactic evening with a new rendition of Gustav Holst’s seminal piece The Planets.
Holst’s The Planets unfolds a sound portrait of all the planets in the solar system. Completed in 1918, the iconic piece revolutionized writing for orchestras and has since inspired countless Hollywood soundtracks, including Star Wars.
On the centennial of its premiere, seven prominent Israel composers – Joseph Bardanashvili, Ziv Cojocaru, Avner Dorman, Avner Hanani, Udi Perlman, Israel Sharon, and Tomer Yariv – revisit the piece with new orchestrations. With two grand pianos and a dizzying array of percussion instruments, MultiPiano Ensemble and Tremolo Percussion Ensemble will take us on an interstellar journey through an extraordinary world of sounds that shifts between past and present, presenting Holst’s timeless piece through the eyes of contemporary composers.
The concert will also include Ravel’s Spanish Rhapsody and Mussorgsky’s Night on the Bare Mountain.
