Ενδιαφέρουσα παρουσία στο club των μουσικών του Μαρτίου ο Ελβετός συνθέτης Arthur Honegger [1892-1955]. Υπήρξε μέλος των Les Six, αν και πιο “παραδοσιακά” προσανατολισμένος [Les six: ομάδα Γάλλων συνθετών που οι στιλιστικές τους προτιμήσεις τους έφερναν αντιμέτωπους τόσο με τον γερμανικό ρομαντισμό όσο και με τον γαλλικό ιμπρεσιονισμό. Ήταν οι Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger, Darius MIlhaud, Francis Poulenc, Germaine Tailleferre].
Honegger έγραψε συμφωνίες, μουσική δωματίου, ορατόρια και όπερες. Περισσότερο γνωστό έργο του, το Pacific 231 για ορχήστρα. Ακούμε δυο άλλα, εξαιρετικά ορχηστρικά:
00:00 Pastorale D’ Ete [με νύξεις στην του Beethoven] και
08:21 Monopartita.

The Swiss composer
Arthur Honegger [1892-1955] is an important figure in the March born musicians club. He was a member of Les Six, though more “traditionally” oriented [Les Six: a group of French composers whose stylistic tastes pitted them against both German romanticism and French Impressionism; they were Georges Auric, Louis Durey, Arthur Honegger, Darius MIlhaud, Francis Poulenc, Germaine Tailleferre].
Honegger wrote symphonies, chamber music, oratorios and operas. The orchestral Pacific 231 is the best-known among his works.
Here ’s two other, excellent works for orchestra :
00:00 Pastorale D’ Ete [with hints to Beethoven’s 6th] and
08:21 Monopartita.

    This music is good, but your knowledge outshines it.
    Did you go to a music university to learn everything you know?

      Just to an ordinary conservatory for piano and music theory. But I’ve listened to a lot [I mean, a lot] of music since childhood, I’ve read a lot about it …and have a good memory.
      As I told you before, the stuff I’ve presented for the past 4 years is [still] the tip of the iceberg, especially when it comes to jazz and the classics.
      Thank you very much!

        Well, I’ll be listening!
        It’s your range of knowledge that is so impressive.
