I'd like to think so.

When my youngest son was about 12 yo or so I brought him to a symphony rehearsal. We happened to be practicing at our performance venue.
My stand partner was absent.
I made Kurt (my boy) sit in the vacant chair next to me.
I remember that we were practicing "Mars" and "Jupiter" from "the Planets".
He was absolutely blown away.
To this day he absolutely loves classical music. Especially symphonic.

That's cool. I have no idea what "Mars" and "Jupiter" are and am even more so in the dark as to what "The Planets" is!

"The Planets" written by Gustav Holst.
A different piece was written for each of the planets on the solar system with the exception of earth.
Delightful music even if the subject matter is astrology.
I highly recommend it.

I think Jupiter is my favorite piece of that set. No Pluto, though, they hadn't discovered it yet!

Man, I went to my violin lesson and there were posts everywhere.

You're right.
I forgot about Pluto and Mickey too.
I don't think that Holst is public domain.
