Joseph Giunta, conducting

Adolphus HAILSTORK   -   Fanfare on Amazing Grace

James MACMILLAN   -   Larghetto

ELGAR   -   Cockaigne Overture (In London Town)

HOLST   -  The Planets

Adolphus Hailstork's Fanfare on Amazing Grace is an explosion of joyous sound reflecting the influence of spirituals sung and loved since childhood. Scottish composer James MacMillan’s eloquent Larghetto for Orchestra is followed by Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture, a cheerful, rowdy musical portrait of Edwardian London. After intermission, Holst’s exuberant evocation of our solar system conjures the luminous night sky as well as the mythological deities associated with each of The Planets. Accompanied by a stunning high-definition film, the swirling energy of Holst’s composition conjures our unfathomable universe in a thrilling conclusion.
