Quote from: erato on March 22, 2008, 08:10:51 AMHow could I forget that! On Whitman texts for the burial of Lincoln, written for Roosevelts burial IIRC. A most moving Requiem.
Quote from: Dundonnell on March 22, 2008, 08:30:57 AMRoger Sessions set the same Whitman poem in his cantata of 1971.
Quote from: erato on March 22, 2008, 08:41:49 AMI've always wondered about this work. Anybody heard it?
Quote from: Greta on March 21, 2008, 08:38:29 PMFavorite Pieces:The Four Temperaments, Mathis Der Maler Symphony, Symphony in Bb for band, Konzertmusik for brass and stringsI am getting into the Symphonic Metamorphosis too recently, it took a few listens but I am liking it more and more. The Turandot movement is wild!And the String Quartets, they are amazing. Recommendations of other works to hear? His output is huge...
Quote from: Norbeone on March 22, 2008, 07:18:06 AMI've really liked everything i've heard of him, though it's not much. His Piano Sonatas No.2 and 3 are great, as are some of hiss brass sonatas, though I can't remember which ones I liked so much. There's also a great piece for string orchestra I heard live, though I can't even remember that title either lol. Great help, aren't I?
Quote from: guidoConcert Music for Brass and Strings, The Four Temperaments and the cello concerto of 1940 are three of my all time favourite pieces of music.
Quote from: DundonnellHis music repays study. It is-in my opinion-an impressive body of work which gives much pleasure and deserves more exposure.
Quote from: Dundonnell on March 23, 2008, 06:28:22 AMLooking through the list of compositions on the Hindemith website I discovered his big Oratorio "Das Unaufhorliche"(1931).I had never heard of this work before but, apparently, it has been recorded by Lothar Zagrosek on Wergo. Anyone ever heard it-or, indeed, heard of it??
Quote from: erato on March 23, 2008, 06:36:41 AMIt was performed IIRC correctly in Norway (somewhere) last year, probably Oslo. So, I've heard OF it. Reputedly massive stuff.
Quote from: erato on March 23, 2008, 06:52:09 AMCould you please provide a link to the Hindemith website?
