Holst: The Planets – SNO, Sir Alexander Gibson

‘Gibson’s version with the Scottish National Orchestra had the distinction of being the first set of The Planets to be recorded digitally. The reading is characteristically direct and certainly well played… there is no doubt that the Chandos recording has fine bite and presence… and excellent detail. With this vivid sound the impact of such a colourful score is undoubtedly enhanced.’
