The archive repository and the reference library of the Hindemith Institute in Frankfurt are available on location for scholarly work. We request a written advance notification of your visit, which should contain a brief description of the research content and of the purpose of research, alongside the exact date(s) of your stay.
The following data banks are at your disposal for your own research:
Catalogue of Works – here is where you can obtain information on all compositions of Paul Hindemith.
Discography – here is where you can find a representative selection of recordings.
Bibliography – this enables you to conduct research on the literature by and about Hindemith.
All audio documents from the estate of Paul Hindemith were left to the German Radio Archive in Frankfurt for reproduction and brought together with the documents there. Out of this extensive stock, the German Radio Archive prepares copies of historical recordings and those not easily accessible upon request.
