GUSTAV HOLST [1873-1934] : MARS, THE BRINGER OF WAR

Εξαιρετικά αφιερωμένο στην αποκρουστική μαριονέτα – “πρωθυπουργό της χώρας” και την κουστωδία του. Με τις καλύτερες ευχές μου [και αυτές συνήθως, πιάνουν].
Ο διασημότερος απ’ τους
Πλανήτες του Χολστ, σε εκτέλεση αναφοράς.

Especially devoted to the repulsive puppet – “prime minister of the country” and his entourage. Best wishes [mine are usually fulfilled].
Here’s the most famous of
Holst’s Planets, in reference performance.

    That piece sounds like the coming of war, all right. I am most struck by the painting.

      It’s “The Colossus”, by the magnificent Francisco De Goya – I felt it was a fitting choice since the giant figure supposedly represents the spectrum of war. I find the music [almost] equally stunning.
