Backhausdance with Sabrina Xiao He and Paul Cracchiolo on Two Pianos
Fluidity and strength take center stage in The Planets as dancers powerfully traverse the musical landscapes of Mars, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune, bringing the solar system to life in unexpected ways. This galactic movement voyage is set to Gustav Holst’s musical movement suite by the same name. Made famous in its fully orchestrated form, the music was originally scored by Holst for two pianos and accompanying Backhausdance on this journey in movement are pianists Sabrina Xiao He and Paul Cracchiolo.
