Afternoon Concert: Honegger & Stravinsky

Afternoon Concert: Honegger & Stravinsky

BBC Hoddinott Hall

Conductor Thierry Fischer
Cello Christian Poltéra

Written in the depths of the Second World War, Honegger's Second Symphony (for strings and trumpet) evoke not only the emotions of the period but also ultimately a sense of hardwon joy. Stravinsky's youthful full-blooded Symphony in E flat, written under the guidance of his teacher Rimsky Korsakov, will appeal to those who love the late nineteenth century Russian romantics.
