Penny Lecture: Holst at 150: re-assessing his achievement

Gustav Holst’s best friend and fellow composer Ralph Vaughan Williams described him as “a great composer, a great teacher, and a great friend”. This shone through Holst’s time as Director of Music at Morley from 1907-1924.

This talk will reassess Holst’s achievement throughout his career, and his lasting legacy.

Philippa Tudor is the author of “Mrs Gustav Holst” and the co-curator of a forthcoming exhibition at Holst Victorian House Cheltenham.
