Product description


Instrumentalists appreciate Hindemith (all those solo sonatas!), as do those orchestral musicians lucky enough to have played his stuff. Sadly, he's still box-office poison, and it's difficult to think of a 20th century composer whose stock has fallen so low. Leonard Bernstein described Hindemith as a master of melody, of harmony and counterpoint and rhythm and form and orchestration, and everything that has to do with music. Wise words, and one of Bernstein's greatest recordings was a Hindemith disc taped late in his career with the Israel Philharmonic. It's now hard to find. So, while you're looking for it, invest in this sensationally performed disc from Marek Janowski and the WDR. Listen with open ears: I defy anyone not to be floored by the slow tune which closes the first part of Hindemith's Op. 50 Concert Music(listed under its alternative title of Boston Symphony), one of the most moving and beautifully shaped melodies of all music , in Bernstein's words. It's phenomenally good, warm and sonorous in Janowski's hands. Just as marvellous is the fast fugal movement which follows, capped by a terrific bluesy trombone solo. How can anyone not love this piece?More familiar are the couplings: Janowski's swift, sharp account of the better-known Symphonic Metamorphoses is outstanding, the jazzy fugue in the Turandot section suitably deadpan, the final movement's sprightly funeral march becoming a brassy stomp.Crucially, Hindemith never lets things become bombastic, the work's good-natured cheeriness winning out. The three-movement suite drawn from the ballet Nobilissima Visione is more introspective, closing with a magnificent, sonorous passacaglia. An exceptional disc, and worth buying just for the killer tune. --The Artsdesk com
