Notes & Reviews:

In his three Piano Sonatas, all written in 1936, Hindemith presents himself not as the rebel and revolutionary of the 1920s, but rather as an heir to the contrapuntal skill and keyboard dexterity of Johann Sebastian Bach. Hindemith's Violin Sonatas mirror the various stages in the development of his musical language from the vocabulary of late Romanticism to the monumental, contrapuntal and revivified Baroque idiom of his maturity. They are performed here by virtuoso German violinist Tanja Becker-Bender who has made a specialty of the music of the early twentieth century.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Here are all four of the sonatas for violin and piano that I know of by Hindemith. They were composed in the phase of his career when he was still writing sonatas almost exclusively for strings; after this, he would become primarily concerned with writing for the principal woodwind and brass instruments. Tanja Becker-Bender and Peter Nagy are very well attuned to Hindemith's idiom.
