Enjoying the Simple Pleasures of Life, While Living in a Complicated World

Inspiring and Majestic, Classical Music: The Planets: Jupiter by Gustav Holst

If you enjoy classical music, there is a video of the famous: “The Planets: Jupiter”, by Gustav Holst which is performed by the Osaka Philharmonic Orchestra. The conductor, is the dynamic-Eiji Oue.

The most famous and majestic, sweeping melody, “To Thee I Vow My Country ”  takes place about 3:10….it’s one of the most beautifully interpreted renditions I’ve ever heard. As this melody begins, watch Oue’s countenance, it completely changes and the emotion he displays is remarkable.
