Holst: The Planets arranged for Brass & Organ by Enrico O. Dastous is an audiophile classic. This recording is not to be missed! Excellent Performance and Sonics!

The music is performed by organist Melanie Barney and the members of the Buzz Brass quintet. This album features an Analog Recording that was made from March 22-26, 2009, at the Saint-Viateur d’Outremont Church in Montreal, Canada. It was nominated for a Classical Album of the Year award at the 2010 ADISQ Gala.

Despite the strong influence of composers from continental Europe in Great Britain, Gustav Holst (1874-1934) developed an entirely original musical style, English if ever there was one, on the fringe of his period’s production. Modifying a work’s instrumentation is a bit like translating a text into another language. One must first understand the composer’s intention, and then find the appropriate vocabulary.

New Planets discovered! Excellent Performance and Sonics - This recording on tape is not to be missed!

Gustav Holst's The Planets for Brass Quintet and Organ was expertly performed by Melanie Barney and the Buzz Ensemble. In spite of the strong influence of composers from continental Europe in Great Britain, Gustav Holst (1874-1934) developed an entirely original musical style, English if ever there was one, on the fringe of his period's production. By far the best known of all Gustav Holst’s compositions is The Planets, a sequence of seven movements, reflecting the composer’s interest in astrology and the generally attributed qualities of each.
