Gustav Holst est né en 1874 à Cheltenham, Royaume-Uni, dans une famille musicienne d'origine suédoise. Il apprit le piano avec sa mère et l'orgue avec son père, durant ses études musicales au Royal College of Music où il eut notamment comme professeur Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924). Il s'essaya dès l'âge de douze ans à la composition, et Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) fut son compositeur préféré. Esprit austère et discipliné, proche de Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), sa mauvaise santé le mena de plus en plus à la solitude. Il est mort en 1934 à Londres.

Parmi les oeuvres majeures de Holst, on peut noter « Seven Scottish Airs » pour piano et orchestre, un Concerto pour deux violons, deux Suites pour orchestre d'harmonie, la « St Paul's Suite » pour orchestre à cordes, « A Somerset Rhapsody », « Les Planètes », « Hammersmith » et « Egdon Heath » pour orchestre, la « Brook Green Suite » pour orchestre de jeunes, la Symphonie « Cotswolds », deux « Choral Symphony », la seconde étant inachevée, quatre Opéras, dont « The Perfect Fool », « At the Boar's Head » et « The Wandering Scholar », « Ode to Death » pour choeur et orchestre, ou bien encore la « Choral Fantasia ».

BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Richard Hickox.

HASH(0x90567174) étoiles sur 5 Little Known Holst 5 février 2009

Format: CD
The disc contains lesser known music by Gustav Holst and begins with his ballet suite from his opera The Perfect Fool (1918-22). The opera has been described as inadequate, mainly because Holst did not set his libretto to his music very well. The ballet music makes a real showpiece however. There are four short movements: Andante, Dance of the Spirits of Earth, Dance of the Spirits of Water and Dance of the Spirits of Fire. In all of these can be glimpsed the Holst who composed The Planets. The music is beautifully orchestrated, tuneful and sometimes exotic. The Dance of the Spirits of Earth is a joyous dance; the Dance of Spirits of Water is a slow and dream-like movement followed by the Dance of the Spirits of Fire that has a war-like tempo with an almost constant use of percussion and gradually diminishes in volume.

The Golden Goose (1926 - 27) is based on one of the Grimm fairy tales about a princess who is unable to laugh but is cured with the titled golden goose. The bird is covered with magic feather so when someone touches him they are held fast and so is anyone who touches the person holding the goose. Jack, who is in love with the Princess, starts the dance and when the Princess laughs he drops the goose and embraces the Princess. The ballet includes a chorus that provides comment on the action. The booklet includes the scenario and the text of the chorus. The ballet failed at its premiere but makes a good concert piece. The music is begins with a rapid dance tempo shortly followed by the chorus introducing the action of the story. Folk melodies abound in the music and it is highly descriptive of the action; when Jack creeps onto the scene the music has a fitting ominous tone and the goose dance is somewhat like a jig. The ballet ends with orchestra and chorus praising Jack and the Princess.

The Lure (1921) started out as music for a play but was not performed as incidental music and was reworked as a ballet for on a commission by Alice Barney. As it turned out the ballet was not performed either and Holst withdrew the work from his list of compositions. The ballet scenario is of moths dancing around a flame. The music is based on a folk melody and despite its scenario is a lively and quite dramatic ballet. The final work, The Morning of the Year (1926 -27) was composed on a commission from the BBC Music Department. The scenario was a sort of Rite of Spring in that it was described as the mating ordained by Nature each spring. Holst makes use of a chorus representing the Voice of Nature. The music is a series of dances based on folk melodies. The Dance of Youths has a rustic quality to the melody and the Dance of the Maidens begins quietly, slowly building into a faster tempo before becoming quiet once again. The Mating Dance is lively with an almost constant rhythm by the tympani and a final flourish of brass, percussion and chorus. The suite concludes with the Dance of the Youngest Couple, a joyous dance that becomes quite and ends with a whisper from the orchestra.

This was the first volume of Holst orchestral music that Richard Hickox was recording and he died after completing the first take of the composer's Choral Symphony for the next volume. The performances on this CD are beautifully played and they stand as a tribute to the excellence of Maestro Hickox as his final recording and his devotion to British music. He will be deeply missed.

Holst has extremely rich orchestrations and vocal combinations. I love listening to him and Williams, the other great English composer.
