Simone Young leads an unforgettable spectacle of explosive orchestral power.Internationally acclaimed Australian conductor Simone Young leads WASO through two unforgettable orchestral masterpieces.

From the savage menace of Mars and the noble high spirits of Jupiter, to the ethereal beauty of Neptune, Gustav Holst’sThe Planets is a brilliantly entertaining astrological and musical journey. If any work can rivalThe Planetsfor sheer spectacle, it must be Stravinsky’sThe Rite of Spring, whose explosive power to shock and move audiences makes it one of the pinnacles of twentieth-century music.
