THE BOURNEMOUTHMUNICIPAL AUGEMNTED
Conducted by ' '. VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON and Sir DAN GODFREY :
ARTHUR HONEGGER , born in Franco in 1892, of Swiss parentage, iscounted as belonging to the modern French school, of which, lie is one ,of the most ..... interesting and original figures. In spite of dissonances which aro apt to striké the older listener as liarsh and, at times, needlessly painful, Honegger's music is jcally based on the old classical forms, and verges occasionally on 'scholastic pedantry. It is full of life and colour, and has a robust' strength of its own which contrasts strongly with the somewhat light and airy fabric of modern French music.
Speaking of this Concertino, and of Honegger's Symphonic .Movement, ' Rugby,' a French critic has said that even more than Pacijic 231, they are both stages in the ' march of the composer towards a former sobriety, and particularly towards an exclusive return to the classic tonality. While some would merely lend their works an appearance of simplicity, Honegger knows, by slow but certain steps, how to achieve that.'

This little study is perhaps not very profound, but it is dramatic, and the idea of using a distinct voice to soliloquize for the central figure is novel and interesting...
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
