Notes & Reviews:

All the pieces on this CD - up to the transcription from the ballet music "Nobilissima visione" from 1938 - are early works for cello, with and without piano from the years 1914-1922, and they show how the young composer was working on shaping his style. Hindemith had a special relationship with the cello, as his younger brother Rudolf was an excellent cellist and long-time chamber musical partner of Hindemith.

The Lithuanian David Geringas is one of the world's leading cellists. He studied under Mstislaw Rostro- powitsch and won the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1974. After re-locating, he first taught at the Hamburg Academy of Music and Theatre, then as Professor of Cello at the Lübeck Academy of Music, and from 2000-2009 at the "Hanns Eisler" Music Academy in Berlin. His pupils include Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt, Eckart Runge, Johannes Moser and Sol Gabetta. David Geringas and his piano accompanist of many years Ian Fountain received an Echo Classic for the CD "Pohádka" on the ES-DUR label, in the category 19th Century Chamber Music, mixed ensemble.
