The Planets

Postby PrimaryLotusUser » November 16th, 2010, 5:19 pm

Gustav Holst, an english composer, wrote The Planets Suite between 1914 and 1916. It is one of my favorite suites and Mars,Bringer of War is one of my favorite songs.In order of how they're supposed to be played:
Mars,Bringer of War: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L0bcRCCg01I&feature=related (if nothing else listen to 4:22 on)
Venus, Bringer of Peace: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKvG0RU4_fI
Mercury, The Winged Messenger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrBXtI1jd6k&feature=related
Jupiter, Bringer of Jollity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nz0b4STz1lo&feature=related
Saturn, Bringer of Old Age: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ0Z6kD06Us&feature=related
Uranus,The Magician: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeF2mMUiw9o&feature=related
Neptune,The Mystic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0i7advgnUk&feature=related

Mars is my fav, Saturn is my least. but hey, Jupiter is a lot of people's fav.decide for yourself.
I should also mention that pluto hadn't been discovered yet, and he didn't wanna use earth.

Review when listened to at 11 AM after an all nighter:

Mars was annoying, Venus almost put me to sleep, I don't remember ANY of Mercury, Jupiter was TOO happy, Saturn was depressing, I listened to, like, three notes of Uranus before deciding that it, too, was annoying. I didn't even click on Neptune...

keke i completely understand where you're coming from. that wouldn't ruin them for me, but i have heard a lot of schools play mars and jupiter badly.

my take on what you said avada: you obviously were listening to the wrong pieces.That or listening to pieces at certain times affects your perception of them.
Mars is raw power, Venus is beautiful, Mercury is a little annoying, Jupiter is majestic, saturn is boring as hell, Uranus is vulgar, and Neptune is a little creepy.

There's a movie neptune plays at the beginning of but I can't think of what it is. Mars at times reminds me of star wars and at other times reminds me of zelda.

With jupiter I was reminded of jurassic park, back to the future, joy to the world, and some high fantasy/sword and sorcery movie.

A lot of people like jupiter the best. my personal take: the part of jupiter from about 2:40 to 4:00 is better than Mars. However, if you take the pieces as a whole, Mars is much better. It transitions more smoothly and has greater dynamic range.Jupiter sounds like holst just got a bunch of random melodies that sounded good together and decided to make a piece out of them. It's not a very flowing piece....until 2:40 to 4:00.

I think I get it. With your jupiter it's easier to notice the slight variations in sounds but with mars you don't notice anything until you get to the end and realize the end sounds completely different from the beginning.

well arent you special. Notice she didn't say she was tired. She said she was about to pass out. There is a very large difference with those two things.
