When one goes to a tailor, one doesn't want a picture or photograph of him, but a well-made suit. If someone wants to occupy himself with me, he should look at my works.
Hindemith, the Man
In 1953 Paul and Gertrud Hindemith moved into the Villa La Chance in Blonay above Lake Geneva in Switzerland. The address of this refuge was known only to their closest friends and relatives.
Today, Hindemith's private library, his picture collection and a few other objects, such as his grand piano, are kept and made accessible at the Musicological Institute of the University of Zurich, his last academic workplace.
