Following the hugely successful performance of The Planets — An HD Odyssey, The Earth – An HD Odyssey is the second film in the series — this time focused on our own planet, with stunning high-definition images of Earth taken from NASA missions.
The featured music is John Adams’ electrifying Short Ride in a Fast Machine, which accompanies images of the space shuttle taking off, and Strauss’ epic tone poem Also sprach Zarathustra. Also sprach Zarathustra is best known from its appearance in 2001: A Space Odyssey, where the opening of the piece is used to hugely dramatic effect. But the entire work is equally stunning — particularly when experienced live.
Argentinean pianist Ingrid Fliter will perform Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1, a rare chance to hear a work by one of the greatest piano composers in the history of classical music.
