Chesky Records combines its outstanding recording technique with the renowned Bruckner Orchester Linz to produce an extraordinary recording of The Planets by Gustov Holst.

This album was made with the purest audio path, using the very best microphones, mic preamps, analogue-to-digital converters, recorders, and cables with careful attention to detail to produce the most transparent and natural sound available.

Composed between 1914 and 1916 this orchestral suite comprises 7 movements:  

1) Mars, the Bringer of War 2) Venus, the Bringer of Peace 3) Mercury, the Winged Messenger 4) Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity 5) Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age 6) Uranus, the Magician7) Neptune, the Mystic  

It's not about expensive Hi-Fi - it's about the music. Although it will be a high-end system!  

Listen to half the album on vinyl and half with true Hi-Res digital streaming.  

Everyone is welcome, so bring your friends, neighbours & work colleagues and spread the joy of listening to music on a good stereo.  

The Music Club is held in our large demonstration lounge upstairs. Each month we will choose a classic album, then play it in its entirety. There will be drinks & a brief intro before settling down to an uninterrupted listen for 45 minutes or so on a true high end system. After the album has been played there will be a chance to browse selected vinyl for sale, as well as discuss all manner of things hi-fi.
