The use of double-stops to enhance character in Paul Hindemith's Der Schwanendreher (1935/6)

posted on 23.03.2020, 00:11 authored by GEORGIA RAE STIBBARD
This research report investigates the use of double-stops in creating and enhancing character in Hindemith's viola concerto 'Der Schwanendreher'. Discussion of the interpretive inspiration offered by folk song lyrics and other non-musical elements within the piece, combined with comparison of two existing recordings, aids in the development of a performance reflecting the diverse characters of the piece.
