Symphony "Mathis der Maler" - Hindemith / Divertimento for String Orchestra - Bartok - 89 784

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(featuring (Side One) The Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Heinz Bongartz / (Side Two) The Radio Chamber Orchestra of Leipzig, conducted by Herbert Kegel ; Early / Mid-Sixties Iron Curtain {East Germany} recordings, for sure ...)

Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) is nowadays regarded as a legendary 20C German composer, but during his own era of living in his birth-nation (ie up until the Late Thirties), the National Socialists often ensured Hindemith faced only criticism. This was partly due to the composer's operatic works, which were considered lyrically-explicit for their day ; but also Hindemith's modern style of composition (Minister of Propaganda Josef Goebbels called the composer an "Atonal Noisemaker"). Hindemith seemed to seal his fate, as far as the Nazi's view of the man went, by marrying a woman with part-Jewish ancestry ...

The Symphony "Mathis der Maler" is taken from Hindemith's 1934 opera of the same name : A work which seemed to combine the direction of his startling instrumental pieces of the Late Twenties, with his growing awareness of "The ethical imperatives of music and the moral obligations of the musician".
Side One : Symphony "Mathis der Maler", by Hindemith :-
1) I Angel's Concert 2) II Burial 3) The Temptation of St Anthony.

Bela Bartok (1881-1945) composed his Divertimento for String Orchestra in 1939, at the age of 58. He was still at the height of his powers and reputation, and for perhaps the last time in his life, he was able to write a piece that did not reflect the Europe that surrounded him : The continent being at a terrible crossroads, yet again in his lifetime.

Indeed, this work does seem to be very blissfully ignorant of its time of composition, with a happy, optimistic mood, that reflected the Hungarian composer's surroundings : A Swiss Chalet in the Alps!
Side Two : Divertimento for String Orchestra, by Bartok :-
1) I Allegro non troppo 2) II Molto adagio 3) III Allegro assai.
