Ideal 7” x 9” Felicitas of Munich photograph of the great composer and violist conducting in 1955.  He received the Sibelius Prize this year.

 

 

Hindemith remains one of the foremost composers of the 20th Century, as well as a humanitarian.  While he was not Jewish, in 1933 he refused to stop playing with Jewish members of string quartets and ensembles.  Which led to his status as a persona non grata with the Nazis and eventually a year later he accepted concerts outside of Germany and escaped with his Jewish wife   in 1940. 

 

Hindemith’s work evolved from the tonal to the contrapuntal, to a style of his own, not far from neo classical.  His opera “Mathis der Maler”, his “Trauermusik”, “Kammermusik” are examples of his new idiom.

 

A sensational example!
