Holst’s Planets' Suite was based purely on astrological ideas about the planets, but the reality is just as thrilling. Dr Karen Aplin, space scientist at Oxford University and principal Double Bass of Henley Symphony Orchestra, will explore the similarities and differences between Holst's music and the planets as visited by space missions.
The illustrated talk took place in the Upper Foyer of the Hexagon at 6.30 pm and lasted about twenty minutes.
