Description

Paul Hindemith's compositions rarely reflected any of the troubles that often plagued his life, but his Flute Sonata written in Nazi Germany in 1936 – two years before Hindemith fled to Switzerland – has darker undercurrents, and bouts of melancholy might well reflect the turmoil in the composer's homeland. The music throughout the movement is slightly ambivalent, here and there sounding bright but also tinged with a sense of conflict, especially from the piano's often unsettled harmonies.

Performers
Flute: Avery Moen
Piano: Sara Greenleaf
