Sir Adrian Boult recorded this work no less than 5 times,this is the second,coming between the 1945 with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the 1956 with the Vienna state Opera Orchestra. Overall it seems to work wonderfully well. The balance feels just right: where quite a few recordings give the impression that there are 7 stand-alone mini tone poems, here, there seems a very organic connection from first movement to last.

Recorded in 1973, this is widely considered one of the great Planets. Previn is outstanding here; he's not going after effects, he's making all the pieces fit together.
Early in 1914, Gustav Holst told a friend: "As a rule I only study things that suggest music to me…Recently the character of each planet suggested lots to me". This marked the beginning of the composition of his biggest orchestral work, a suite of seven movements. The first to be sketched was Mars - prophetically, for the First World War began just as he completed it. The order of the composition of the remainder was Venus and Jupiter in the autumn of 1914, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune during 1915 and Mercury in 1916. The orchestration of the complete work was also finished in 1916.

"Planets" - a documentary film by Ken Russell with the music of composer Gustav Holst in the performance of the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra.
Collage assembled from fragments of films, newsreels and advertisements from around the world and covers a wide period of time. Russell has received special permission from the composer's daughter, where she set a condition not to use pictures that show the atrocities of war. Therefore, we can only imagine what would be the choice of masters for the first theme: Mars.
The film is completely devoid of narration and voice acting, but his musical arrangement, which is based on the plot, the narrative has the same meaning as the video sequence, and, in fact, creates the atmosphere.
This is very unusual, stunning film was undeservedly forgotten. Want to believe that better quality video would be available soon …
In this orchestral suite of 7 pieces. Each planet of the solar system (except Earth and Pluto) is devoted to his own plays, which, in principle, quite distinct (ie it can be executed and obeyed and separately).

Gustav Holst's "The Planets" is a brilliant portrayal of the other celestial bodies outside of Earth (except for Pluto because it wasn't discovered back when Holst composed this). Mars is violent and in a military march form. Parts of it have the brassy dominating sound resembling that of Darth Vader's theme. Venus sounds like something out of a black-and-white romantic movie, high lush strings, celesta, french horn and all, a personal favorite. Mercury is a very playful sounding piece, strong emphasis on the woodwinds and strings. Jupiter is definately my favorite…

Maybe Tomita's most unified and exciting album, "The Planets" was taken out of market for a few years by court order from Gustav Holst's relatives. They claimed that Tomita had manhandled their father's great composition, and the record company withdrew some 30,000 records from the stores.

I.m.h.o. this 1974 recording with André Previn conducting the London Symphony Orchestra is one of the very best interpretations and recordings of Holst's orchestral suite "The Planets" that's available on record. First, the interpretation is second to none. Previn's conception of all the movements is excellent and perfectly consistent, from the extremely violent "Mars" to the dreamy, lyrical "Neptune". Second, the sound is superb: clear, detailed, full-bodied analogue stereo sound from the days when EMI made their very best recordings.
