It was bloody brilliant. And I found myself slightly star-struck, when I realised I was sitting just two seats away from Julian Lloyd Webber.
Recently I’ve been longing to go and see (hear) it again… although I doubt Jules will be there this time.
And so tonight finds me searching the internets for tickets.
Tickets to see (hear) The Planet Suite.
All of it.
By Gustav Holst.
I couldn’t find any though and somehow I ended up just listening to Jupiter on YouTube.
Which was great.
But, then the ‘YouTube sidebar of time-wasting’ sucked me in, and I found myself clicking on all sorts of videos, only to emerge two hours later, bleary-eyed and finding that everyone had gone to bed.
But, I thought I’d share a couple of favourites that I found, with you… they’re fairly short.
I would love to have been there for this one, but being a southerner, I missed out. I very much doubt it’s ever going to happen in our shopping mall in town.
And this one just made me jealous: the talent of this fella! It’s scenes like this that make me wish I’d paid more attention to my music teacher at school.
