Uneven, but the highs are very high indeed

"Pacific 231" is Arthur Honneger's orchestral depiction of an old-fashioned steam locomotive starting up from a dead stop; slowly, with great effort, building up speed; reaching a headlong, hurtling and rather scary peak of acceleration; and finally grinding to a halt. It is by far the most effective example of music imitating life I've ever heard & is worth far more than the modest price of this Naxos CD. The other pieces recorded here are all very good, but nothing quite as jaw-dropping as "Pacific 231." The "Pastorale d'ete" is a really lovely depiction of a summer sunrise. The rest is of varying interest. But if you download "Pastorale d'ete" and "Pacific 231" you won't be disappointed.
