Gustav Holst's youthful enthusiasm for Wagner is reflected in his ebullient Walt Whitman  overture written in 1899.  Shortly afterwards he composed the Cotswolds Symphony which embraces hints of contemporary British folk music but is dominated by the slow movement, a profound elegy for the utopian socialist William Morris. Though completed at college, A Winter Idyll shows real orchestral assurance, and Indra is a tone poem revealing Holst's interest in the legends of India. 

JoAnn Falletta accepted the appointment of Principal Conductor of the Ulster Orchestra in May 2011, the first woman and the first American to be appointed to the post.
