Hindemith, Hartmann and Henze
The composers who dominated the mainstream development of German music.Twentieth-century German music has been characterized by its extreme diversity. A central mainstream has been dominated, however, by the work of Paul Hindemith (1895-1963), Karl Amadeus Hartmann (1905-63) and Hans Werner Henze (b. 1926). Born in different periods, and from different backgrounds, there are remarkable parallels between their careers.This erudite book looks at how all three have nurtured their heritage by uniting the spirit of experiment with traditional German expression.
