Tracklist: Gustav Holst (1874 – 1934). Except for the generically late Romantic A Winter Idyll, the other early works on the album contain hints of the mature Holst. In the case of the Invocation for cello and orchestra, Op. 19, No. 2, it's a big hint; the work, in the able hands of cellist Guy Johnston, has the spaciousness and slightly mystical quality of The Planets.

This selection of orchestral works by Holst provides a remarkable overview of his career, ranging from such early works as A Winder Idyll – composed in 1897 when he was still studying at the Royal College of Music – to the Scherzo of a symphony on which he was working towards the end of his life. None of the music recorded here was published in his lifetime, and the Scherzo – rarely heard though it is – is the only work to have entered the repertoire.
