Arthur Honegger (10 March 1892 in Le Havre - November 27, 1955 in Paris), Was an Swiss-French composer. He was one of modern music's prominent figures. A prolific composer, who was eager to describe transformations in society, including arts and sports. Honegger wrote for theater, radio and cinema (it was time for silent films) and the concert hall: ballets, songs, chamber music, film scores, operas, oratorios and five symphonies. Also a new genre Mouvements Symphoniques (movement symphonies), illustrating sport and machinery, part of his repertoire.

Honegger was with the group of younger composers around Erik Satie - circuit, which later became known as Les Six. One of his most famous works are the oratorio Jeanne d'Arc at the stake (Jeanne d'Arc au Bucher) from 1935. The most argued orchestral work is probably Pacific 231, which has been interpreted as the imitation of the sound of a steam locomotive. From 2 World War start and until his death, wrote Honegger his last four symphonies (Nos. two to five), which is considered among the most powerful symphonic works of the 20th century.
