HINDEMITH PAUL / BERLIN P. O.
Top Customer Reviews
It is also a rare treat to hear a composer conducting one of the finest orchestras playing his own works and as a result the tempos and dynamics being as the composer intended them to be.
Despite having produced a large output most of the recordings of Hindemith's works tend to duplicate the same few compositions (Mathis der Maler, Symphonic Metamorphoses etc.). It is refresshing that this set includes some of his less recorded works such as the splended Concert music for piano, brass and 2 harps.
A magnificent set of recordings at a bargain price. Highly recommended.
I was initially put off by the fact these records where done in the 1950s. Seriously, you wouldn’t guess it. I don’t know what the boys at DG have done, but the sound quality is quite phenomenal.
Despite their age the sound is very good, the atmosphere intense, and the presence of plenty of lesser known compositions decidedly welcome. What I'm loving is the cosmopolitanism, the (pre)echoes of Shostakovich and Britten, resonances with Stravinsky, flashes of Les Six, German polyphony, chorale tunes, you name it. Try the remarkable Konzertmusik Op.49, for Piano/Brass/Harps. Monique Haas in das haus: all sorts going on. That comes after a sparkling Concerto for Orchestra, like a series of entr'actes, a more successful condensing of Hindemith's theatrical experience than Die Harmonie der Welt (Disc 3), something which is just too dry.
This Berlin Philharmonic is the one Karajan inherited from Furtwangler, and these recordings mark the transitional period. Furtwangler, as is well known, fought some sort of battle over Hindemith's Mathis Der Maler. In the end it was Karajan who recorded the symphony, for EMI, a year or two after the composer's version, again with the Berliners.Read more ›
The Mathis Der Mahler symphony has been performed at the Proms this year (2010)and is his most frequently performed work. This is the quintessential performance and the dynamics and phrasing are superb.
Other works included in this 3 disc collection demonstrate his development as a composer through his life and especially reflect the traumas of his persecution by the Nazis and subsequent period in the USA. Inspiring - Fantastic!
