  • August 24, 2007 Wow, innovative!

    I've only got to play the 1st movement extensively, but as you study it, the amazing Hindemith quartal & semi-octotonic sonorties are well done. He does a great manipulation of the sonata-allegro form, keeping it fresh even into the 20th. Beginning of the 3rd movement is also beautiful...

  • August 15, 2007 Hindemith Second Piano Sonata

    Although Hindemith is sometimes known for being overly academic in his writing, the second piano sonata has many inspired moments and leaves a lasting impression on listeners. The sonata is marked by an energetic first movement, a humorous second movement and a lively final movement (surrounded by a slow introduction...

    and coda containing full, rich harmonic writing). Effort put into learning this composition will allow the performer added insight into Hindemith's compositional style.
