Overview

Synopsis

Holst: In the Bleak Midwinter
Cause-célèbre British documentarian Tony Palmer helmed this biographical documentary on the life and work of English composer Gustav Holst (1874-1934. Though best known for his orchestral suite The Planets (1914-16), Holst in fact led one of the most colorful lives of any composer in history - one that witnessed him living among brothels in Algiers, cycling in the Sahara Desert, teaching himself Sanskrit, distributing Socialist newspapers, and much more. Palmer explores the major events of Holst's life chronologically, then discusses his death from cancer as a lonely and broken man, before his 60th birthday. Tamas Vasary and Sian Edwards conduct the film's musical score. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
