Review By Classic FM,

A rousing film soundrack to the 1934 version of Victor Hugo’s French masterpiece from the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Once dubbed ‘the true leader of modern film music in France’, Honegger wrote 40 film scores including this immense work for the 1934 black-and-white version of the Victor Hugo classic. Wary of ‘big’ melodies and easy motifs, Honegger isn’t a ‘let-them-eat-cake’ kind of film composer. But his splendidly tub-thumping ‘convict’ theme—a masterpiece of downtrodden rage—and vast colouristic palette ought to stir the blood of all armchair revolutionaries. © Classic FM
