5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy book for a worthy composer 23 Mar 2001
By Keith Peters - Published on
Harry Halbreich has done a masterful job of putting together the most complete book on Arthur Honegger, one of the two or three great composers of the 20th century. Halbreich explores the personal life of the composer (bringing him down a notch or two in his personal life and his time in occupied France)as well as a thorough exploration of all of Honegger's works. Recommended both for the professional musician as well as the listener who loves this Swiss composer's output. For those who know only Pacific 231, the symphonies and King David, this biography will open new doors to the many other compositions of Honegger.

5.0 out of 5 stars A quick-and-easy transaction for an invaluable book 4 Oct 2010
By Radames T. Carson - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had long wanted this biography of one of my favorite composers, whose relative neglect in the U.S. mystifies me greatly. The entire transaction couldn't have been smoother; I received the book, which arrived in excellent condition due to careful packing, within a week. I am going through the biography with great delight and interest; Honegger the human being is as interesting and involving as his musical creations.
