The Planets 2018

September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Written out of a fascination with astrology, Holst’s The Planets was first performed 100 years ago. But what would it sound like if created today?

Inspired by modern astronomy and music, the adventurous Ligeti Quartet perform 8 new planetary works, created especially for planetariums, by 8 composers spanning contemporary classical, electronica to jazz. Exploring the domes’ unique design with live visuals, The Planets 2018 takes you on an astronomical journey into new music.

Music and science collide as composers Ayanna Witter-JohnsonDeborah Pritchard, Laurence CraneMira CalixRichard BullenShiva Feshareki, Samuel Bordoli and Yazz Ahmed connect with astronomers to explore the modern science of our solar system. Taking inspiration from the latest explorations of Mars, Earth, Mercury, Saturn, Venus, Uranus, Jupiter and Neptune, sit back, look up and discover The Planets 2018.
