Arthur Honegger was born in Le Havre in 1892.

He developed unusual musical and dramatic forms in large-scale works for voices and orchestra, and was one of the twentieth century's most dedicated contrapuntists, with a clear indebtedness to Bach. His language is essentially tonal but characterized by a highly individual use of dissonance.
