BBC Music Magazine Disc of the Month
Here is an excellent introduction to a still underrated composer... In the Concerto, Alban Gerhardt ranges from the seductive to the sensational: for the opening, Thierry Fischer conjures up a wonderful dream atmosphere, and at the other end of the scale Gerhardt gives a terrific account of Maurice Maréchal's authorised cadenza ... [Prélude, Fugue et Postlude] is one of Honegger's great unknown masterpieces, and Fischer's orchestral balance captures perfectly the personal quality of the three majestic chords that open the Prélude - they could be by no-one else
BBC Music Magazine


This beautifully judged account of Honegger's Christmas cantata, his last complete work, makes this collection an appropriately seasonal release.
