Clearly influential on Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast, King David established Honegger’s credentials as a serious composer of considerable talent. Michel Piquemal directs a wonderfully dramatic cast with style and passion in the smaller-scale original version of Honegger’s symphonic psalm. Recommended. Christopher Dingle
