Hindemith's Residence 1923-27

Hindemith, a talented draftsman, made a number a drawings of his unusual Frankfurt residence. He drew the silhouette of the tower and floor layouts of the rooms with plans for their furnishing in 1923 on a notebook with sketches for the Klaviermusik für Orchester (Klavier: linke Hand), Op. 29, a work commissioned by and for the Austrian pianist Paul Wittgenstein. He was able to finance the renovation of the tower from the fee for this composition.
