Sinfonia da Camera ‘The Solar System’

March 12, 2013

From creation to demotion, Sinfonia explores the music of the spheres. The evening begins with Milhaud’s vision of Earth, inspired by African folk mythology and American jazz. Holst’s iconic The Planets tells a tale of heavenly bodies from Jolly Jupiter to Mars, bringer of war. We know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but in tonight’s solar system, Pluto still shines among his kin in Matthews' Pluto the Renewer.
