The Planets

Knoxville Symphony Orchestra

STRAUSS, On the Beautiful Blue Danube
MAZZOLI, These Worlds In Us
DEBUSSY (arr. Stokowski), Clair de lune
HOLST, The Planets

The KSO’s Opening Weekend begins earthbound with Johann Strauss, Jr.’s, elegant and uplifting “Blue Danube” waltzes before embarking on a simultaneous journey of distant and interior worlds. Poetry-inspired works by Missy Mazzoli and Claude Debussy delve into the richly layered emotional and spiritual worlds that live inside every person through the symbols of flight and the moon. Holst’s The Planets, conceived by the composer as exploration of the astrological influence of the planets on the human psyche, will be presented images of our Solar System, allowing for simultaneous consideration of the astronomical majesty with which this masterpiece has come to be associated.
