Mars, Venus, Jupiter…everyone has their favourite bit of The Planets. But there’s more to Holst’s masterpiece than just great melodies. Tonight, John Storgårds travels to infinity and beyond, and follows two modern geniuses into new worlds. Sir Andrzej Panufnik was a Polish asylum seeker who became one of Britain’s finest post-war composers. Then the RSNO’s John Whitener launches a brand-new concerto by the American composer Jennifer Higdon. Don’t miss it.
