ADAMS: Short Ride in a Fast Machine
ELGAR: Cello Concerto
HOLST: The Planets

Paul Fleury, cello

Experience a profound new approach to Gustav Holstís symphonic powerhouse, The Planets, live with HD images from NASA projected on the big screen. The concert opens up with one of the most exciting concert openers ever written, Short Ride in a Fast Machine. John Adamsí work is brilliant and upbeat. It's a five minute fanfare that hearkens back to both Copland and the 1940s big bands Adams heard growing up and is full of vibrant joy. Cellist Paul Fleury joins the SCSO to present Sir Edward Elgarís powerful Cello Concerto. The heartfelt Cello Concerto was Elgar's final great work. He poured into it all the passionate sorrow he felt at World War I's destruction of Europe's people and their ideals.

Experience a powerful performance of composer Gustav Holstís monumental The Planets paired with a high-definition film from NASAís latest exploration of the solar system. On a screen over the stage youíll see the latest stunning images from the Mars Rovers and past probe missions Magellan, Voyager, and Galileo. In cooperation with NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratories,

The Planets Ė An HD Odyssey adds a spectacular visual element to Gustav Holstís cosmic masterpiece.
