The Inner Planets

Themes from Mercury, Venus and Mars
Gustav Holst
Arranged by Carrie Lane Gruselle
Grade: 4

This cleverly titled work includes three famous themes from The Planets. The swooping and fluttering sounds of Mercury, the Winged Messenger give way to the mystical tone clusters and serenity of Venus, the Bringer of Peace. The arrangement closes with the iconic militant ostinato and extreme dissonance of Mars, the Bringer of War. An exceptional arrangement. (4:30)
