Arthur Honegger’s epic story of King David, a central figure in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths. This dramatic psalm, composed in 1921, tells the story of the giant-slayer David, the warrior David, the cunning survivor David, the poet musician David and the imperial monarch David–but also the all too human David, the adulterer and murderer, stricken by conscience who is punished by God and tempered into true greatness by repentance and redemption.
