This looks really exciting a new series on SACD from Chandos: Holst: Orchestral Works!

Volume 1 will have The Morning of the Year, The Lure, The Golden Goose, and The Ballet from "The Perfect Fool". I'm hoping Volume 2 will have the Beni Mora and Japanese Suites.

Well, Richard Hickox' sudden death (during a recording session for the second volume of the series) may have put the Holst series to an early end.

Thanks for the link that is sad news indeed, unexpected deaths always are. Richard Hickox will be missed.

Holst is one of my favorite composers and he wrote so much wonderful music and most listeners only know him by "The Planets". I wonder if another conductor-fan of Holst in the Chandos roster will pick up where he left off?

Richard Hickox and Martyn Brabbins shared the Sir Malcolm Arnold cycle.

edit: not Brabbins, it's Rumon Gamba.

Rumon Gamba, not Brabbins.

So do I, and I do hope they finish the VW SACD cycle, too. Chandos told me they hadn't yet recorded the 7th and 9th, nor Job with Richard Hickox.

Very,very sadly Ricard Hickox died on Sunday November 23, 2008 at the early age of 60. We here in UK will miss him greatly especially in Bournemouth where he had been our Principal Guest Conductor for many years. I am sure we would all wish to send our sincere condolences to his family at this difficult time for them.
R.I.P. Richard

I posted this November 26, 2008 and my wish came true! //(*_*)\

I have just completed the review of Volumes 1 and 2 which will be in the next issue of PFO.

Either I am very lucky or someone at Chandos read my post and suggested them, either way I want to thank Chandos from the bottom of my heart for providing my favorite Holst compositions on DSD recorded SACDs. Bravo and I love you guys!

Not to push my luck, but I am hoping for the Fugal Overture, Hammersmith, Indra, Sita, the Somerset Rhapsody, and Suite de Ballet for the next couple of volumes but of course will be happy with whatever Holst compostions come next.
