description

The Planets by Gustav Holst is one of the best-loved twentieth century pieces by a British composer. Ken Russell has taken a brilliant performance of this work, with Eugene Ormandy conducting The Philadelphia Orchestra, and illustrated The Planets with passages from a mass of documentary material. Russell’s work in fi lm and television has been dazzling and controversial, though often full of charm and insights. His feature fi lm credits include The Music Lovers, Women in Love, Mahler, The Devils, Savage Messiah, Liztomania, Valentino and Tommy. In this fi lm from 1983 he presents his visual interpretation of Holst’s music. Written in seven movements, each describes the character of a planet: Mars – forceful and assertive; Venus – love of all things beautiful; Mercury – eloquent; Jupiter – buoyant and hopeful; Saturn – enduring; Uranus – eccentric and unexpected; and Neptune – subtle and mysterious. Russell’s view of The Planets is provocative, stimulating, inventive, entertaining and wonderfully watch-able, with “images that are beautiful, frightful and imaginative”.
