Album Description Download Full CD Booklet

The most enigmatic and neglected figure in the pantheon of great modernist composers, Paul Hindemith is best known by today's audiences for a few serious symphonic works. In reality a big-hearted humanist with a sense of humor, Hindemith has acquired, since his death a no-nonesense musical personality. John Bruce Yeh sets out to remedy this situation with this album.

Critic Reviews

American Record Guide (www.americanrecordguide.com)

"You will look in vain for faults on this gorgeous new album of Hindemith clarinet chamber music.... Yeh is brilliant in everything, as is the sparkling, always-engaging playing of Easley Blackwood. The sound lacks nothing. This is somewhat of a landmark release and can't be ignored."

ClassicsToday.com (www.classicstoday.com)

"A very distinguished release, one that even those who normally avoid Hindemith, and especially his chamber music, very easily could come to relish."
