New Publication: Hindemith-Jahrbuch / Annales Hindemith 2021/L
The 50th volume of the Annales Hindemith begins with a contribution by Maureen Falcon Hontanosas who examines individual phases of thematic construction in her detailed study of the sketches of Hindemith’s ballet music Nobilissima Visione (1938). An interview with Hindemith which appeared in the Turkish daily newspaper ULUS in November 1937 in the Turkish language and has not previously been a subject of Hindemith research is presented by Günther Metz together with a German translation of this article summarizing Hindemith’s cultural activities in Turkey. Correspondence between the composer and the US-American publisher Ernest R. Voigt documents among other topics Hindemith’s efforts to explore new possibilities of setting up a professional life in the ‘land of unlimited opportunity’ in the wake of his massive denunciation by leading Nazi functionaries and the official ban on performances of his music in 1936. The volume concludes with an article on the mountain film Im Kampf mit dem Berge 1. Teil: In Sturm und Eis [The Fight with the Mountain Part 1: In Storm and Snow] for which Hindemith composed the music in 1921. At the screening of this film in the Capitol cinema in Mainz on 24 November 2021 on the initiative of the publisher Schott Music, Susanne Schaal-Gotthardt outlined the origins and reception of Hindemith’s film scores.
