Jupiter, from The Planets, by Gustav Holst, accompanied by a graphical score.

Q: What do the colors mean?
A: In this video, color is assigned according to pitch; the system is described here:
As a result, changes in tonality can be seen as changes in the palette of colors (for example, notice the change at 0:28, or at 2:49, or 5:27, or 6:48, or 6:55, or 7:34). Unpitched instruments (triangle, tambourine, cymbals, bass drum) are shown in gray. Timpani, cymbals and brass instruments are shown with ellipses. Other percussive instruments are shown with collapsing rhombi (triangle, glockenspiel, harp, pizzicato strings). Wind instruments and normally-bowed strings are shown with rectangles (strings are thinner, but highlighted with a light outline). Tremolo string notes shimmer.

Q: Who are the performers in this recording?
A: I don't know. I licensed this recording from Unique Tracks in 2012. At the time, they didn't tell me anything about the group or the conductor. The recording has subsequently been removed from their catalog.
