More than a prolific genius, Paul Hindemith was a complex and paradoxical figure. Timothy Young unravels some of the knots using parallels from older music traditions and the spirit of Hindemith’s time.

“Was there anything Paul Hindemith couldn’t do!? A master musician, prolific composer, conductor, theorist and educator. The contradictions abound as he sustains the great music traditions whilst living and working in the intellectual, artistic and socio-economical turbulence of Berlin through two world wars. In ANAM Discusses, I would like explore some of these parallels with older music traditions, how he used music to communicate the individual and collective desperation and hopes of his time, the role of the artist and the importance he placed on music education.
– Timothy Young, Head of Piano (Margaret Johnson Chair of Piano)
