Non Holst n'a pas composé uniquement que les fameuses Planètes!
David Lloyd-Jones nous fait découvrir avec bonheurs ces quelques chefs-d'oeuvres, en particulier Egdon Heath.
La Somerset Rhapsody nous fait évoquer les paysages tranquilles du sud-ouest de l'Angleterre; coup de coeur pour les mystères arabisants et la danse enivrante du finale de Beni Mora, ainsi que pour la joie immédiate de la Fugal Overture. L'Invocation et Edgon Heath nous ramène à un Holst plus sombre et méditatif, proche du "Saturne" des "Planètes".

Bref plus d'une heure de bonheur distillé avec force de conviction et puissance par D. Lloyd-Jones et le RSNO.
On pourra aussi se référer al'excellent disque "classique" de Boult chez Lyrita.

Le programme de ce cd se divise en deux : les trois premières oeuvres datent des débuts de Holst, les trois suivantes de la fin de sa carrière. Pour ma part, seules la joyeuse Fugal Overture, l'insaisissable Egdon Heath et à un moindre niveau l'orientale Beni Mora sont intéressantes : les autres ne présentent pas vraiment d'originalité et sonnent bien creux. L'interprétation est pourtant excellente (voir aussi le superbe enregistrement des Planètes par les mêmes) mais la moitié seulement ne suffit pas à en faire un indispensable. Livret français.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brilliant compositions by Holst! 13 janvier 2001
Par Lee Hartsfeld - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This magnificent CD reveals that the great British composer Gustav Holst was no one-hit wonder. Holst's peculiar talent for making epic statements in any musical setting and in any musical length is much in evidence in this collection. Featured, in part, are the wonderful 1909-1910 "Beni Mora" suite, an "oriental" exercise in minimalism that renders modern efforts in the same vein beneath consideration; the 23rd-century-sounding 1923 "Fugal Overture," with its astounding orchestration and uniquely overlapping counterpoint; and the 1906-1907 "Somerset Rhapsody," featuring folk-song quotations and composed at the prompting of Cecil Sharp. These are enriching and challenging pieces, very well performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
Once again, the Naxos label has provided a superb product at an unbelievably low price. They deserve our business!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Holst CD Not To Be Missed!! 12 janvier 2004
Par Paul Rossi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The other reviewers here have correctly given praises to David Lloyd-Jones and his excellent English orchestra for their fine, affordable performances of Holst's lesser known orchestral works. Lloyd-Jones is a fine, sensitive conductor who expertly shapes and conducts each piece, eliciting expert sounds and music from the orchestra.
The "Fugal Overture" has some very interesting tone clusters in it. It is a short piece, and it showcases Holst's eerie, fascinating sonorities quite well.
"Egdon Heath," considered by Holst himself to be his finest work, is a dark, brooding piece that haunts the listener. Lloyd-Jones and the orchestra capture these moods perfectly.
My personal favorite on the CD is the "Beni Mora" suite, Holst's brush with orientalism. It sounds somewhat like the orchestral works of Borodin at times. The drone in the last movement is really catchy (Holst heard an Algerian native intone it for over two-and-a-half hours!!).
Tim Hugh plays the "Invocation" with beauty and expression, receiving great support from the orchestra.
If you would like to augment your Holst collection, you should purchase this CD. I would recommend it even at full value!

Holst: Orchestral Works [Naxos 8553696]

A wonderful cd program with Lloyd-Jones conducting a competent orchestra. The choice offers some lesser-known compositions by the man who brought the 20th century with great music, such as the original Suite 'The Planets' and the 'St.Paul's Suite'. To my knowledge, there aren't that many recordings of these works. Thanks to Naxos some fine pieces are made available again to the public.

For the orchestration of a version for two pianos of his 'Planets', Holst (who died in 1934 due to health problems) has had the helping hand of two fellow faculty members at St.Paul's School : Nora Day and Vally Lasker (renown as pianist, arranger and teacher, both have worked closely with the composer). Lasker has been in touch with some of Holst's smaller works as well, and she did collaborate with Ralph Vaughan Williams, among others. Here and there, the influence of English folk tradition is striking : Is it a bequest from the folk song collecting outbursts of the early 20th century---led in England by Cecil Sharp---or a souvenir of the "Field Days" with Vaughan Williams? The folk idiom is particularly obvious in 'Somerset Rhapsody' and the 'Fugal Overture'.

You can almost walk through the soothing pastoral peace of the English countryside and smell the air (around the instruments!) when listening to the small but worthwhile pieces from this cd. The 'Somerset Rhapsody', the bold 'Beni Mora' and the typical beauty of 'Egdon Heath' (which Holst's colleagues and friends have welcomed with much praise) are part of the musical travelogue ; every minute of the program is pleasant---not much complaint about the playing, very good if not excellent on the whole. The orchestral elements were developed meticulously---as it seems to me---in respect to the nuances, phrases and colors of that genuinely charming British music. David Lloyd-Jones is virtually remarkable in his role of conductor. The music exposes a facet of Gustav Holst's musical persona ; it seems analogous to some works by Finzi, Bax or VW. Those orchestral works are also quite different from the Eastern-influenced or more "mystical" compositions (the operatic work 'Savitri', for instance).

Again, this is a very good album albeit not entirely blameless : Richard Hickox on Chandos (CHAN 9270) brings a strong challenge, although i wouldn't venture to say which one is clearly the better. Sir Adrian Boult (on Lyrita, SRCD222) is aptly regarded as a paragon in that specific repertoire. However, considering price versus quality of performance (plus quality of sound), this cd is a laudable bargain, and it inserts a couple of works which were not included on the outputs of Hickox and Boult.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Top-flight Recording 19 juillet 2009
Par Karl W. Nehring - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Although many audiophiles have several CDs by Gustav Holst on their shelves, they are likely to be all of the same work, The Planets. But Holst was far from a one-work wonder, and this splendidly recorded CD from Naxos brings together more than an hour's worth of Holst's music that is bound to delight music lovers--and maybe a few audiophiles, too. Some of the cuts feature a bass drum of near-Telarc impact, but none of this music is written for mere sonic effect. Beni Mora, subtitled "Oriental Suite," is especially enjoyable, but the other cuts, particularly the Invocation for Cello and Orchestra, are quite rewarding, too. This is a top-flight CD both musically and sonically, and had I paid three times the Naxos price, I would still have felt as though I got my money's worth.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Holst orchestral works on Naxos 17 juillet 2012
Par Dr. H. A. Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This inexpensive CD contains six rather less well-known works by Gustav Holst, played by the Scottish National Orchestra conducted by David Lloyd-Jones. The CD opens with an early work from ca. 1906 - the Somerset Rhapsody. Its themes are taken from four English folk songs whose melodies were given to Holst by Cecil Sharp. Then follow two works from the end of the decade - the Beni Mora Suite, inspired by Holst's holiday visit to Algeria, and the Invocation for Cello and Orchestra. All these works pre-date his famous suite, The Planets.

The remaining works are later than The Planets. The Fugal Overture was originally the overture to an opera called The Perfect Fool. Egdon Heath atmospherically portrays the desolation and stillness of the heathlands of the southern county of Dorset and was inspired by the works of English poet and novelist Thomas Hardy. Finally there is Hammersmith, a piece written four years before his death. It captures something of the bustle of the busy London suburb where Holst spent many years teaching in St. Paul's Girls School.

If you already enjoy the music of Holst, or would like an introduction to a range of his works capturing many different moods, this is a CD for you.
