Podcast: Hindemith’s String Quartets Nos. 1 and 4

June 6, 2015

Violinist, violist, pianist, conductor, composer, teacher, concert presenter and author—the impact of Paul Hindemith (1895–1963) on twentieth-century music is vast. Critic Paul Bekker said of him: “He doesn’t just compose—he musics!” Hindemith composed seven string quartets between World Wars I and II, and they have all been recorded and released on a highly-acclaimed cycle with the Amar Quartet on the Naxos label. In this podcast, Rick Phillips explores the third and final volume of the series.
