Holst's The Planets Suite

The composer Steven Price, who won an Oscar for Best Original Score for the space film 'Gravity', discusses the ways in which Holst's Planets Suite is still inspiring film composers to make an 'other-worldly' sound. Was Holst, as some say, the first sci-fi composer? New Generation Thinker Sarah Dillon presents.

Recorded in front of an audience at the Royal College of Music.
