About this Recording

Cello Recital: Hurtaud, Sébastien: HINDEMITH, P.

Hindemith’s music for cello closely follows his evolution as a composer. With elements which look back to Schumann, Three Pieces, Op 8 is among his earliest published works, while the solo Sonata, Op 25 is indebted to Bach’s Cello Suites and is one of the most intense and demanding of his chamber works. The ingenious variations on A frog he went a-courting are lighter in nature, contrasting with the weighty depths of the Sonata for Cello and Piano. Sébastien Hurtaud was first prize winner at the Adam International Cello Competition in 2009.
