 MUSIC FOR THE INCURABLE HINDEMITH ADDICT April 10, 2013 By Zita Carno (Tampa, FL) See All My Reviews "Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! This is a marvelous compendium of some of Hindemith's finest orchestral works, and it includes three works I've been trying for ages to find. They're here! the Symphonia Serena, with the composer's delightful take on a march that Beethoven had written for some queen's birthday (and which I had conducted at a Hindemith festival in the mid-80s); the "Nobilissima Visione" suite, with that marvelous passacaglia finale; and a terrific performance of "Der Schwanendreher"---I love that piece, and if I were a viola player I would certainly have done it. My only quibble, such as it is, would be with the opening of the second movement, the "Turandot" scherzo in the Symphonic Metamorphosis---I would have liked it a bit slower, which would have set up the main body of the scherzo which really takes off! But no matter; this is Hindemith at his best, and I'll probably wear it out listening to it." Report Abuse
