Arthur Honegger

2 December 2005

I’ve been listening to ‘Composer of the Week’ on Radio 3 this week. I didn’t know much about Arthur Honegger but was intrigued to hear his music having recently read a novel in which a character becomes fascinated by Honegger’s symphonies. (The book was ‘The Closed Circle’ by Jonathan Coe – the sequel to ‘The Rotter’s Club’ – both highly recommended.) Honegger was a really interesting character and composed some great works – I particularly liked his cello concerto and some of the other orchestral works.
