Two of Britain’s best loved orchestral pieces, The Planets and Enigma Variations have been re-worked by George Morton into an astonishing chamber arrangement. Both works are known for their large orchestras but these exquisite new arrangements capture their nature, grandeur and excitement perfectly.
Each movement of The Planets Suite is named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst. The Enigma variations are really called Variations on an Original Theme and the enigma is that no-one has ever discovered the meaning behind the theme in question. Each variation is a brilliant depiction of Elgar’s friends.
