Notes & Reviews:

This recording takes a look at the lesser known side of Paul Hindemith's works. In addition to the Little Sonata, this CD contains the Kammermusik No. 6 and works by Stamitz and Biber with the basso continuo parts realized by Hindemith. Gunter Teuffel plays Hindemith's own viola d'amore, giving the whole production a 'personal' sound.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The front cover shows the headpiece of the instrument made for Hindemith by Eugen Sprenger with the head of Hindemith's wife Gertrud on it. The Biber Partita is for two violas d'amore and basso continuo and is some of the earliest music for the instrument; Carl Stamitz's sonata gives us the classical period's view on the subject. The harpsichord lines in both works are by Hindemith and show how style conscious he was. Teuffel plays with fine taste and virtuosity and so do his colleagues. The recording is clear and well balanced, making this a really valuable acquisition.
