Notice biographique

Gustav Theodore Holst (1874-1934) was a British composer. He studied piano and violin as a child and later worked as an organist and choirmaster. He was later allowed attendance at the Royal College of Music (after previous unsuccessful scholarships) and studied composition under Charles Stanford. He later learned the trombone and composed, conducted and taught music. He is best known for the orchestra suite 'The Planets' but also composed operas and other works.

Portée et contenu

Five letters from Holst to a Mrs Cohen, with a signed postcard. Mrs Cohen appears to have hosted Holst during the Leeds Triennial Festival 1925, and to have invited him on several occasions to holiday with her and her husband in the Lake District. Holst cannot accept her invitation for August 1926 as "it is most important that I am entirely alone as much as possible during the summer holidays" (f.8).
