THE PLANETS: VENUS Gustav Holst
transcription for solo piano & Ted Muller
Completed in 1916, the gorgeous orchestral work The Planets features a segment dedicated to each of the solar system's seven known planets other than earth (Pluto was not discovered until 1930).
This arrangement is an adaptation of the composer's own two-piano
transcription of the work. Several errors in the published sheet music
have been corrected so as to conform to the harmonies in the orchestral score.
I personally find the last note (F) played by the left hand in
and 134 to be out of this world.
Having subsequently discovered that mine is not the only
solo-piano transcription of this work, I nevertheless believe that you will
find my engraving to be more user-friendly.
