      Gustav Holst
      The Planets, op. 32
      Organ transcriptions by Peter Sykes

      Hansjörg Albrecht, organ

      Gustav Holst’s most popular work is The Planets. The work is usually heard in a luxuriant orchestral instrumentation in the concert hall. The music is often used as a background to fantasy films or video-games. Interpreters of pop-music such as Sarah Brightman, Frank Zappa and Vangelis have also quoted parts of The Planets in their own pieces.

      Hansjörg Albrecht shows us that it can also be done completely differently. At the St. Nikolai Organ in Kiel, he has put the seven individual pieces in the limelight no less bombastically and dramatically for the listener.

      Of course, this recording is also a continuation of OehmsClassics’ series of organ transcriptions with Hansjörg Albrecht in SACD Sound, ensuring that the sound in your living room will be perfect.
