About this Performance

Gustav Holst’s fan-favorite The Planets offers an out-of-this-world journey, exploring the astrological personalities that inhabit our solar system, from the combative Mars to the joyful Jupiter and the mysterious Neptune. Philip Glass’ First Violin Concerto, like the composer himself, embraced taboo and broke many unwritten rules, but its pulsing minimalistic language and interplay between orchestra and soloist made it one of his most popular works.

This performance is generously supported by Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts and the Kohl Virtuoso Violin Fund.
