Gustav Holst - (Philadelphia Orchestra) The Planets Op. 32 Mars, the Bringer of War, conducted by Eugene Ormandy. E. Ormandy really was the real
deal-- he used his whole body, face, gestures, expressions. Sadly missed.
"I don't mean to make you nervous, but unfortunately I have to." - Ormandy
"Who is sitting in that empty chair? " - Ormandy
"EO: Percussion a little louder
Percussion: We don't have anything.
EO: That's right, play it louder." - Ormandy
"Please follow me because I have to follow him and he isn't here." - Ormandy
I've seen that work performed more than once. It's one of my favorites. I will say my favorite to watch is Klemperer, not the most lively persay but
the greatest of the century in his art in my opinion.
