 Beautiful re-awakening June 10, 2014 By R. George See All My Reviews "In this masterful performance of the Hindemith Metamorphoses, the Musicians, acoustics, and the outstanding engineering make the music as exciting as the first time I heard it. I have always loved Hindemith and have rarely heard this work in such an exciting recording, even though it doesn't seem to be embellished, it is simply a fantastic performance." Report Abuse
