Paul Hindemith (1895-1963)

Quintet for Clarinet and String Quartet, Op. 30 (1923)

Paul HindemithPaul Hindemith was one of the most complete musicians of all time. A great 20th century instrumental composer, he was also a multi-instrumentalist, professional violist, professor (including a tenure at Yale) and master theorist who wrote several texts based on his own comprehensive worldview of musical meaning. While much of his music explores a diversity of 20th century techniques, Hindemith’s music is largely tonal, melodic and artfully crafted. A huge body of excellent works for an astonishingly broad range of instrumental ensembles characterizes Hindemith as, first and foremost, a composer of chamber music. « more »
