Recorded live at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, London, on 28 March 2007 (Pastorale d'été and Symphony No. 4) and 5 December 2009 (Une Cantate de Noël).

Today the Swiss-born composer Arthur Honegger is often remembered as a member of 'Les Six' - that embodiment of 1920s Parisian modernism. But far from rejecting late Romantic expression, Honegger embraced it. In these live concert recordings, Vladimir Jurowski conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in three of Honegger's most lyrical works: the dreamy Pastorale d'été, the nostalgic Fourth Symphony, subtitled 'The Delights of Basel' in remembrance of the sanctuary offered by the Swiss city during the war, and his final composition, the reflective and heartfelt Cantate de Noël.

'Of course, anything conducted by Vladimir Jurowski is worth hearing. His galvanising effect on the band whose Principal Conductor he will shortly become was evident again here, notably in the beguiling, brushed-velvet textures he conjured in Honegger's Pastoral d'été ... and in an immaculate ensemble and textural clarity everywhere.' Richard Morrison, The Times, March 2007

Vladimir Jurowski became the London Philharmonic Orchestra's twelfth Principal Conductor in September 2007 and this CD is the latest in his ever-growing catalogue with the LPO on its own label, adding to his recent critically acclaimed recordings of Mahler Symphony No. 2, Brahms Symphonies 1 & 2 and Holst's Planets.

As a member of the high profile 'Les Six', Honegger's music is relatively under-represented in the CD catalogue.

The only other recording of Symphony No.4 is an old Vasary recording with the Bournemouth Sinfonietta on Chandos.

All other recordings of Symphony No.4 are part of boxsets: Camden/English Sinfonia/EMI; Dutoit/Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks/Warner Classic International; Baudo/Czech Philharmonic Orchestra/Supraphon.

Une Cantate de Noël is Honegger's last completed work and remains one of his most popular. The competing recording is Hyperion's with BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales under Thierry Fischer.
