Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
The E major Sonata of 1935 is brief (under 10 minutes long) and uncomplicated, yet it's familiar Hindemith from first note to last. The C major work (1939) is more complex and grave, and probably the finest of them. The longest sonata, and most conservative in idiom, is the D major. Both Op 11 works were written in 1918 while Hindemith was on active service, and are remarkable for bearing few traces of either the grimness of the Great War or the composer's personal voice. Both deserve wider currency. This issue is also welcome in including the fragmentary abandoned finale of Op 11 No 1, a rustic dance not in keeping with the symmetry of the whole. The sweet-toned Ulf Wallin is fully attuned to Hindemith's wavelength, and Pöntinen provides exemplary support. The recording is typical BIS (ie excellent). A splendid disc.
