Holst’s The Planets was first performed 100 years ago. But what would it sound like if created today?
Inspired by modern astronomy and music, the Ligeti Quartet perform 8 new planetary works, spanning contemporary classical, electronica to jazz, created especially for planetariums. Ayanna Witter-Johnson, Deborah Pritchard, Laurence Crane, Mira Calix, Richard Bullen, Shiva Feshareki, Samuel Bordoli and Yazz Ahmed explore the domes’ design with live visuals, in an astronomical journey into new music.
