Notes & Reviews:
Paul Hindemith was an all-round musician, virtuoso violist, composer and educator. He mastered all the instruments of the orchestra to a more or less professional level of proficiency, all of which was more than adequate preparation for conducting too. He was strongly influenced in his conducting by Wilhelm Furtwängler, placing the highest value on the living tradition of interpretation. This release features his 1958 recording of Bruckner's radiant Seventh Symphony; the mature master locating Bruckner's achievements as a high point on the continuum between Bach and his own work.Notes & Reviews:
