Jupiter Rising

This modern fantasia-like arrangement of Holst's "Jupiter", from The Planets, turns each major theme from that work into a separate movement. Features a wide range of musical styles and moods, with soloist opportunities.

  • Theme 1 - a contemporary rendition of the opening strains of Jupiter
  • Theme 2 - a lively jazz arrangement of the waltz-like theme
  • Theme 3 - a more straightforward arrangement of the well known Jupiter chorale
  • Finale - a fast-paced finale which combines previous themes into a rewarding culmination

Difficulty: Prime Series


Originally commissioned by the Northrop High School Band, Rachel Thorson, director.
