Song of the Day #1975

Song of the Day: The Planets, Op. 32, IV: Jupiter, The Bringer of Jollity, composed between 1914 and 1916 by Gustave Holst, is part of a seven-movement orchestral suite. Check out a wonderful recording by James Levine and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (below) as well as this recording of the full suite by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Andre Previn [YouTube links]. It’s my favorite of the seven integrated sections. I want to thank my dear friend Ryan Neugebauer for having introduced me to this, and so many more musical selections that will be featured in the coming months.
