And who was the driving force behind all this [Holst's "The Hymn of Jesus"]? Conductor John Storgårds [...] It was him who gave us the delightful contrasts of tone and timbre with which the Holst was replete; and who supplied that remarkable energy that fired 'The Heav'nly Spheres make music for us' passage, which he drove particularly impressively. He also teased out those eerie Planets-like touches and gave the work such a satisfying overall structure.
