Program Notes

As a high school student back in the 1970’s, I was very much impressed with and influenced by the music of Gustav Holst (1874-1934). I found Holst’s music moving, energetic, emotional, and infused with both a rich and exotic harmonic language. In 1930,  Gustav Holst wrote a masterful work entitled Hammersmith, named for the city he was well acquainted with for over 40 years.
