On demand: Honegger's Symphony no. 3

Bergen Philharmonic OrchestraRecorded at Grieg Hall (Grieghallen), Bergen, Norway

The Symphony no.3 was composed by Arthur Honegger after World War 2, and the composer explained how the music was deeply connected to the horrors of the war and the desire for peace.

It is one of Honegger's best-known works, with three movements, each named after a liturgical text. 

Watch this emotionally-charged piece as performed by the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra directed by Swiss orchestra conductor and musician Thierry Fischer.

Filmed in October 2017.
