Ravel Rhapsodie Espagnole
Ravel Introduction and Allegro
Holst The Planets

Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams
Soloist Krissy Teng, harp

Few English works composed in the 20th Century have been so popular or enduring as Gustav Holst’s The Planets. Originating from the composer’s interest in Astrology, this exhilarating suite depicts in music the astrological personalities of seven planets.

Opening the concert are two contrasting works showing the genius of Maurice Ravel. The Rhapsodie Espagnole is one of his first major works for orchestra, with four movements: the atmospheric Prelude to the Night, a dreamy Malagueña, an alluring Habanera and a fiery and colourful Feria (Festival).

Based in Belgium, the brilliant young harp soloist Krissy Teng joins the orchestra to perform Introduction and Allegro, a work commissioned by the Érard Company to demonstrate the wide expressive range available in its double-action pedal harp.
