This is the fourth production by the in-house label of the Sinfonieorchester Basel, established in 2012.

Honegger finally completed his Second Symphony in December 1941 and sent it to Paul Sacher. Sacher then performed it for the first time on May 18, 1942, now with his second orchestra, the Collegium Musicum in Zurich.

Deliciae Basilienses - "I have written this fourth, and probably last, symphony for my friend Paul Sacher for the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Basle Chamber Orchestra". Although this ‘Symphonie liturgique’ follows the tradition of Beethoven, in that its content is as much dramatic as emotional, it has greater claims, so far as its form and spirit are concerned, to the style of Haydn or Mozart.
