"... the orchestral colours are as Christmas baubles and the haunting wordless choir emerges eerily from a distant galaxy ..."
- Classic FM

"Editor's Choice ... a great live Planets from Jurowski’s LPO ... all told, an excellent version."
- Gramophone

"... its character and its superb sound, both detailed and well-balanced, are as impressive and involving as ever ... played with polish and accuracy all the more astonishing at the fleet speeds favoured by Vladimir Jurowski."
- BBC Music Magazine

Few composers have achieved such success with a single work as Holst with The Planets; each movement expressing the planets' supposed astrological character. This rousing performance of the groundbreaking work was recorded by the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s under principal conductor Vladimir Jurowski in May 2009, showcasing the colourful orchestration and memorable melodies for which this huge, multimovement piece is known.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
