Uploaded on Jan 23, 2019

(Use audio source => YouTube, or use link below) During the composition of The Planets, Gustav Holst wrote the Japanese Suite at the request of Michio Ito, a Japanese dancer.

Michio Ito wanted to dance to a work derived from traditional Japanese. However, Holst didn't know any traditional Japanese music, so Michio Ito had to whistle several to him.
