Hindemith, Hartman and Henze

Front Cover
Phaidon Press, Oct 19, 1995 - Biography & Autobiography - 239 pages
Twentieth-century German music has been characterized by its diversity. A central mainstream has been dominated, however, by the work of Paul Hindemit, Karl Amadeus Hartmann and Hans Werner Henze. Born at different times, and from different backgrounds, there are parallels between their careers. This book looks at how all three have nurtured their heritage by uniting the spirit of experiment with traditional German expression.
