SUGGESTED READING

There is no full-scale study of Hindemith and his music in English.

The following articles are recommended: "Paul Hindemith and Neo-Classic Music" in Music and Letters, January 1932; William Hymanson 's "Hindemith's Variations" in the Music Review, February 1952; and Rudolf Stephan's "Hindemith's Marienleben: an Assessment of its Two Versions," Music Review, November 1954. Norman Cazden 's "Hindemith and Nature" in the Music Review, November 1954, is a well worked-out rebuttal of Hindemith's theoretical views.

A catalog of Hindemith's works was published by Schott in London in 1954. This is particularly valuable because Hindemith stopped assigning opus numbers to his works after he reached Opus 50 in 1930.

Hindemith's lectures given at Harvard published as A Composer's World, Horizons and Limitations ( Cambridge, 1952) is recommended for the insights it gives to his thinking. His theory is expressed in The Craft of Musical Composition ( English Ed., 1941). H. W. Heinsheimer 's Menagerie in F Sharp ( Garden City, N. Y., 1947) gives an accurate and amusing picture of the musical situation in Austria and Germany between the wars.
