Notes & Reviews:

Paul Hindemith intended to return to his actual instrument, the violin, "only in cases of dire need." Why? Because the viola appealed to him so very much more. Christian Euler's new recording of two solo sonatas and two duo sonatas with the pianist Paul Rivinius now present these works for the first time in 3-D quality on Super Audio CD.

Christian Euler naturally masters the extreme technical difficulties of Hindemith's sonatas with bravura - and what this experienced virtuoso and educator gets out of these so very different works is absolutely a listening must! Op. 11 No. 4, a work composed in response to the death of Claude Debussy, contains impressionistic reminiscences and forges sophisticated thematic links between the three movements.

Paul Rivinius is Euler's perfect chamber partner in the duo sonatas and knows how to get the best of opulent and intelligent sound out of the Steinway concert grand piano "Manfred Brki", owned by MDG. For their British recital with works by Bax, Bliss.

Released as dual layer hybrid SACD playable on all CD players.
