Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Arthur Honegger, one of the greatest twentieth century composers, made an unrivalled contribution to film music during the course of some thirty years, from his scores for Abel Gance's silent epics 'La Roue' in 1922 and 'Napoleon' in 1926 to his last works of this kind in 1951 - a total of some forty film scores. This recording brings together four scores from the 1930s, beginning with Honegger's own suite from the music he wrote for Marcel Pagnol's 1937 film, 'REGAIN', a homage to Provence and its country people. This is followed by a suite drawn from the music for Pierre Chenal's 1934 screen dramatization of Dostoyevsky's great novel, 'CRIME ET CHATIMENT', and two symphonic movements assembled from the score for 'LE DEMON DE 'L'HIMALAYA' of 1935. The recording concludes with the complete score provided by Honegger for Bertold Bartosch's 1934 animated picture, 'L'IDEE'.
