Never compose anything unless the not composing of it becomes a positive nuisance to you” — these words exemplify the depth and passion in which Gustav Holst chased the heights of music composition. A renowned composer, who is recognised today as the composer of ‘The Planets’, Gustav Holst exerted a major influence on the rock music of the mid 20th century. He was one of those few men who were referred to as post romantics. Along with his friend Vaughan Williams, he shared a common interest in English folk song and helped in the advancement of English orchestral music to leap beyond the boundaries of England. Holst excelled in all the areas, which he touched; he was not only a great composer, but also a gifted teacher who passed on his legacy of music to the posterity. Unlike his contemporaries, an eastern influence made his music unique and distinct. His forte extended from operas to chamber music to vocal and orchestral music, Sanskrit literature, astrology and more, thanks to his innovative and intriguing mind. No wonder Holst occupy an individual place in the history of 20th century music.
