This highly difficult adaptation of Mercury is for two marimbas, vibraphone and glockenspiel. It includes luscious unisons, athletic runs and extreme soft control. Holst's The Planets has proven to be one of the most enduring and popular of all tonal pieces ever composed.
Suggested for extremely advanced undergraduate to graduate level ensembles.
