Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hartmut Lindemann: "...combines a finely spun, expressive tone with creative intelligence and effortless brilliance right up to the top notes where the viola often sounds like a violin. Supported by pianist Günther Herzfeld with nimble improvisation, Lindemann improves on many a frivolous piece with his thoughtfulness, creating the right atmosphere for the CD title (named after a Debussy arrangement): Beau soir – a lovely evening." - Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung Hartmut Lindemann: "...combines a finely spun, expressive tone with creative intelligence and effortless brilliance right up to the top notes where the viola often sounds like a violin.
