  • August 26, 2011 The Planets - Full Score

    This is a great tool for composers/teachers alike. As a composer in college I love using this score! Besides the great Orchestration and interesting and unusual instruments it has such memorable and great melodies! Everyone knows"Mars: the Bringer of War" after hearing the first few beats because of...

    how powerful it is. Personally I feel any music lover should have this score on their shelf. Holst is a great orchestrater and his music is great for bands and orchestras alike! Also the book and the print are big enough that it is comfortable to read and one doesn't need a magnifying glass to read it! Excellent score!

  • July 15, 2008 Great score, shame about the binding

    This is an excellent score of a fantastic piece of work. Clear notation and easy to read, although there are no bar numbers. The only thing stopping it getting 5 stars in my opinion was the binding - if it was spiral bound it would have been perfect. That said though...

    , the transcript is great, worth every penny!
