To mark the centenary of the first performance of Holst?s The Planets on 29th September 1918, Guild is proud to present the first complete release of a recording that multi-talented music legend Mike Batt made in 1993 that has lain in the vaults for 25 years. Produced by Robert Matthew-Walker and engineered by Abbey Road's Simon Rhodes in the first 20-bit digital recording of the work, Mike's fresh and insightful approach to the score together with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's brilliant playing provide an inspired account of Holst?s masterpiece and the CD concludes with a rousing performance of Elgar?s Pomp and Circumstance March No.1.
