Der Schwanendreher

by Paul Hindemith (1895-1963)

I. "Zwischen Berg und tiefem Tal" Langsam-MaBig bewegt, mit kraft

During my first and second years of my graduate degree, I was a finalist in UO’s concerto competition. This performance is from my first year in the final round of the competition. Hindemith’s viola concerto is one of my favorite pieces to perform. Each movement tells a folktale from medieval Germany.
