Programme Notes / Performance Details :In Anconas arrangement of "Mercury" from Holsts masterpiece "The Planets," the percussion ensemble re-creates the playful and rhythmic character of the original orchestration.

Originally performed in 1996 in Star of Indianas "Brass Theatre," "Mercury" is a harmonically complex piece yet very listenable at the same time. It requires ten players and relies on clever, integrated scoring to achieve its overall sound. Fun for performers and accessible to audiences.
