Gustav Holst: Invocation (Score)

Books | Score

Publisher: Faber Music
Composer: Gustav Holst
Invocation was composed in 1911 and first performed on May 2nd of that year in the Queen's Hall, London, by May Mukle with the New Symphony Orchestra conducted by Landon Ronald. The work received several performances with Piano accompaniment before 1914, but with the public success of The Planets, it became one of many works that Holst never had time to revise or publish. A certain amount of editing of dynamics and phrasing has been necessary, and the Piano reduction has occasionally been slightly adjusted to match the orchestral accompaniment more closely. The separate Cello part has been edited by Julian Lloyd Webber.

      Musicroom Reviews

      As someone who has tried to play the 'cello for fifty years, I was delighted to discover a CD with Holst's "Invocation" as one of the tracks. On receiving the score, I was equally please to find that the music was within my compass, though I doubt if my playing would ever grace the Albert Hall. I am grateful to Musicroom for their fast and efficient supply of this lovely offering of one of this country's greatest composers.
