Well his Symphonies are awesome, and I expected no less from this concerto.
I am also curious after the complete SQ I ordered!
Have some experiences with that?
For the time being I have only his two piano concertos.

I'm listening to a variety of shorter orchestral Honegger.

Prokofiev - Piano Concerto No. 3 - Kun Woo Paik/PNRSO/Antoni Wit
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Both the Pergolesi & Caldara are fine pieces of music.
Which recordings do you have my friend?
