Paul Hindemith (1895-1963)

The Sins of Youth

Tuesday 10 June 2008 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Repeated: Tuesday 10 June 2008 20:45-21:45 (Radio 3)

Donald Macleod explores Hindemith's radical and very productive years in the 1920s, showing how by 1922 the young composer, brimming with confidence and excitement, was known across Germany as an 'enfant terrible' of the ultra-modernist school. However, some of these works the composer himself would come to regard as 'the sins of youth', and would cause him great embarrassment under the Nazi regime.
