ALLA BREVE

March 15, 1987|JOE SALTZMAN

HONEGGER: SYMPHONY NO. 1; "PASTORALE D'ETE," "RUGBY," "MOUVEMENT SYMPHONIQUE," NO. 3; "PACIFIC OVERTURES"; SYMPHONIES NO. 3 AND NO. 5. Charles Dutoit and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Two Erato/RCA Compact Discs (ECD 88171 and 88045). Here are two CDs filled with some of Honegger's seldom-heard works, music with so many strange and thoughtful ideas and feelings that one wonders why they have been relegated to the backwaters of 20th-Century music. These are clean, well-balanced recordings. The performances by Dutoit are committed.
