Abstract/Artist's Statement

Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) was a German composer, performer, conductor, author, teacher, and music theorist, although he would have described himself simply as a musician. While widely recognized for his compositions, he was an important pedagogue in the first half of the twentieth century in Europe and America, and wrote of number of books outlining how he thought harmony and theory should be taught. He believed it was an artist’s social duty to pass on to younger generations what they discovered. There is not much known about his life outside of his intense professional activities, as he was completely dedicated to his musical work.
