About the Concert

Holst's thrill ride through the solar system is actually a series of tone poems about war and peace, love and joy, and life and death. In "My Sister's Voice," a Hindustani singer and a Western soprano join together in a ravishingly beautiful story of crossing cultures. First, Vaughan Williams' work inspired by English Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis features the lush sound of the Columbia Orchestra strings.
