Difficult but powerful work by Arthur Honegger who composed the oratorio Joan of Arc at the Stake to a text by the poet Paul Claudel

In the history of the Czech Philharmonic, few compositions have left as deep a mark as Honegger’s oratorio. In 1970, Ivan Medek, then the Orchestra’s dramaturge, programmed the oratorio to commemorate Jan Palach’s self-immolation. This work will be led by Lukáš Vasilek, Artistic Director of the Prague Philharmonic Choir.

Arthur Honegger composed his “dramatic” or “scenic” oratorio Joan of Arc at the Stake to a text by the poet Paul Claudel.
