Composer Gustav Holst is best known for The Planets. It is a powerful masterpiece that still captures the imagination today. His comic opera The Perfect Fool is less well known. He wrote it between 1918 and 1922. And while the complete opera is infrequently performed, the ballet suite is favorite among fans of classical music. Enjoy both suite and The Planets on this CD performed by the Orquesta Filarmonica de Gran Canaria, which is led by conductor Adrian Leaper.
