Paul Hindemith 1895-1963

Paul Hindemith, born in Hanau in 1895, is one of the defining figures in 20th-century music. When performances of his music were banned, he emigrated, first to Switzerland, then to the USA. He returned to Germany after the Second World War and died in Frankfurt in 1963. Hindemith composed for many different kinds of ensemble and published widely, including a mould-breaking theory of tonality.
