ANAM Radio: Hindemith's Kammermusik (Ep 5 2021)

Episode 5, 2021: Hindemith’s Kammermusik
Wednesday 22 September 2021

Born in Hanau, Germany in 1895, Paul Hindemith was cultivated as violist, violinist, pianist and percussionist. He was also “one of the most practical, but also the most overlooked composers of the last century.”  Considered an avant-garde composer in the 20s, Hindemith’s Kammermusik no.1 features twelve solo instruments and reflects its composer’s Dadaist response to chamber music.

In this episode of ANAM Radio, ANAM’s Head of Piano, Timothy Young (Margaret Johnson Chair of Piano) talks to Phil Lambert (ANAM’s Music librarian) about how he first came about Paul Hindemith and his works, and some of the things that he has learned about how to write music from the prolific musician and composer.
