Visiting another hero – Gustav Holst. At the Holst Museum, Cheltenham. Very inspiring. How did this quiet unassuming teacher write one of the most stupendous pieces of music in history ? THE PLANETS !!!
Sitting at Holst’s piano. No ! Not playing it ! I wouldn’t dare touch it !!! This is the sitting room of his childhood and his portrait is on the wall. Inspiring. I’m going straight home tonight to play my old vinyl copy of THE PLANETS suite. Amazing. #holst Bri. Photo by Sara Bricusse.
