This is the first published version of Gustav Holst's The Planets arranged for solo piano. Originally scored for two pianos and four hands, this epic orchestral work continues to astound and charm audiences around the world, even a century after Holst started work on Mars, the Bringer of War. This volume allows the pianist to emulate those thumping ostinatos, crashing chords, glistening textures and soothing harmonies, bringing the wonder of The Planet even closer to the player.
