Among the most popular and important modern British composers, Gustav Holst was a true eccentric, given to odd enthusiasms and mystical musings. His spectacular symphonic suite The Planets, first performed in 1918, established his international reputation and remains a staple of the orchestral repertoire to this day. Scored for huge orchestral forces and a wordless chorus, the work is divided into seven movements, the music of each embodying the astrological and mystical qualities of a different planet.

The tragic tale of brothers who are in love with the same mysterious woman, Debussy's only opera is a perfect marriage of music and verse.

Fromont 1904 edition, reproduces the full orchestral-vocal score in a clear, modern engraving.

Among the leading pianists of the 19th century, Clara Schumann was a respected published composer in her lifetime, regarded by her contemporaries as a member of the avant-garde "new romantic" school. Praised by such greats as Chopin, Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Liszt, her music is being heard again today in recitals and new recordings. This rare collection, reproduced mainly from the classic Breitkopf and Hartel edition of 1879 is introduced by Dr. Nancy B. Reich.
