ESCHENBACH HINDEMITH MIDORIMaestro Christoph Eschenbach puts the NDR Sinfonie Orchestra through its paces in an exciting live recording of the Metamorphoses.
The music on this disc consists of three works of Paul Hindemith, the earliest being from 1930, and the latest having been written in 1943. The oldest work is presented first, the "Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by C.M. von Weber", a work in four movements that features delightful interplay between the various sections of the orchestra that is based on pieces of Weber's for piano for four hands.
The well-written liner notes indicate that Hindemith and his wife would have been familiar with several piano four-hands pieces of Weber's since they played them at home. This composition is one of Hindemith's most popular orchestral works, and it is a pleasure to listen to.
