Chicago Symphony Orchestra Gustav Holst the Planets

In 2007, the Chicago Symphony formed its own recording label, CSO Resound©. After an agreement was reached with the Orchestra’s musicians, arrangements were made for new recordings to be released digitally at online outlets and on compact disc. The first CSO Resound CD, a recording of Haitink’s rendition of Mahler’s Third Symphony, was released in the spring of 2007. Releases that followed included Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony, Mahler’s Sixth Symphony, and Shostakovich’s Fourth Symphony (Grammy winner), all conducted by Haitink; Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony led by Myung-Whun Chung; “Traditions and Transformations: Sounds of Silk Road Chicago” with the Orchestra’s Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant Yo-Yo Ma (Grammy winner); and recordings of Verdi’s Requiem (Grammy winner) and Otello, under the direction of Muti.



Venus Square to Mars. Venus, the goddess of love, harmony and beauty is fighting with her lover Mars over their very different point of views. Venus is in Scorpio and wants deep commitment and honesty. Mars is in playful Leo and likes to play, seduce and tempt the goddess. Men are from Mars and women are from Venus and they are often very different if their perspectives, needs and desires. I always thought that book from John Gray was genius in playing on the deep archetypes we all have in us. Tracing our Moon's changing porosity may ultimately help astronomers to track the trajectory of the invading army of a multitude of lunar impactors, that occurred during the Late Heavy Bombardment, 4 billion years ago. The ring around the Earth eventually began to condense into blobs that then proceeded to merge and create a large and brightly glowing sphere--our primordial Moon. Our Moon would have appeared to be ten times larger than it does today in Earth's ancient sky--if anyone had been around to see it.
