• Jupiter (The Planets)


    From a young age I was moved by this beautiful theme from Gustav Holst’s The Planets Suite. While much of the “Jupiter” movement is fast and lively, the theme arranged here carries a certain grandeur that is perfectly befitting the majesty of this ruling planet. This arrangement is in the original key of E-flat Major and begins with single-note melody supported by simple close range harmony, which gradually expands in breadth and harmony to full fortissimo chords. Beautiful soaring melodic lines accompanied by supportive bass harmonies make this a strong selection for an intermediate piano solo, perfect for a recital piece.
