Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the fourth production on the Sinfonieorchester Basel’s in-house label, established in 2012. Renowned American conductor and pianist Dennis Russell Davies has been the orchestra’s principal conductor since 2009. Honegger’s Second Symphony (‘Symphonie liturgique’), completed in 1941 and premiered by Paul Sacher in 1942, follows the dramatic and emotional symphonic tradition of Beethoven, but in its form and spirit, hues towards the style of Haydn or Mozart. - Naxos This is the fourth production on the Sinfonieorchester Basel’s in-house label, established in 2012.
