Remembering Paul Hindemith on the 125th Anniversary of His Birth

Remembering Paul Hindemith on the 125th Anniversary of His Birth

Schott Music has been publishing Paul Hindemith’s complete compositional output ranging from works for the stage, orchestral pieces, concertos, chamber music, vocal compositions to music for children and amateur musicians for 100 years. This November, the musical world will celebrate the 125th anniversary of the composer’s birth – no easy task for concert organizers in the middle of the pandemic. Under the current problematic circumstances, it is Hindemith’s concertante kammermusiken for solo ensembles and other concert pieces for smaller forces such as his viola concerto Der Schwanendreherand the Theme and Four Variations (according to The Four Temperaments)for piano and string orchestra, which have proven to be most suitable for performance. A rarity can be also experienced at the Capitol Cinema in Mainz, Germany on November 18 when a screening of the silent film "Im Kampf mit dem Berge," by the mountain film pioneer Arnold Fanck and with a score by Hindemith, takes place. The spectacular shots in the Pennine Alps were filmed at an altitude of 13,000 feet exactly one hundred years ago.
