Sonata for Flute and Piano

By Hindemith Paul

P. Hindemith: Sonata for Flute and Piano was written in Berlin in 1936 by comission of Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge Foundation in Washington. The Sonata was premiered in 1937 by flutist Georges Barrère and the pianist Jesús María Sanromá at the Library of Congress in Washington. The Sonata was written during time when Hindemith's music was practically banned by Nazis as "atonal and noisy", thus facilitating his departure to Switzerland in 1938.

Hindemith Paul

Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) was German composer, violinist, violist and conductor, one of the main figures of so-called New Objectivity (art movement against expressionism, implying more practical engagement with the world).  Since 1927 Hindemith taught at the Berlin's Hochschule für Musik. However, later in 1930's, when Hindemith music was banned by Nazis as "atonal and noisy" he had to leave for Turkey where he helped to establish Turkish State Opera and Ballet, thus greatly influencing musical life in Turkey.

In 1940 he founded the Yale Collegium Musicum in US making great impact on many notable students. Mostly known compositions: Symphonic Metamorphosis of Themes by Carl Maria von Weber, opera Mathis der Maler (Matthias the Painter), song circle Das Marienleben (The Life of Mary), and Der Schwanendreher (The Swan Turner) for viola and orchestra.
