Example text

Gédalge encouraged his pupils to compose right away ("Compose! " And in a revealing analysis he showed that the essence of the first movement of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony was primarily melodic. Gédalge had no time for tricks. Unlike his colleague Georges Caussade, he didn't turn out first-prize winners, but musicians. Honegger, after seven long years of labor, was armed with one of the most formidable contrapuntal techniques of all time, as the flowing counterpoint of the Finale of the Fourth Symphony demonstrates, worthy to be mentioned with that in the Finale of Mozart's "Jupiter" Symphony.

This then was the shape of the world when the timid, well-behaved young Arthur Honegger took his place in the violin class of Lucien Capet (the same Capet whose quartet Honegger had heard playing so marvelously in Le Havre a few years earlier). Very soon he met a young man from Strasbourg a few months older than himself who, like him, made the weekly return journey between home and ParisCharles Münch, who was one day to be Honegger's most faithful interpreter. At the same time, Honegger became a counterpoint pupil of André Gédalge, in a class that was probably unrivaled in the world at that time, and just what he needed now that he had finished his harmony studies in Zurich.

But if harmony can be learned in a few hours, it is counterpoint that dictates the movement of parts, it is counterpoint that enriches the texture, and thereby creates the harmony and renews its substance. Page 21 He was twelve or thirteen years old at the time, and every week he would bring home with him Georges Tobler, one of his classmates, a violinist like himself, and, to judge by his name, also Swiss by birth. With Honegger's mother at the piano, they reveled in the delights of chamber music.
