5.0 out of 5 stars Another Wonderful Gould Recording! November 3, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
.
Along with Schoenberg, Hindemith was one of Gould's favorite composers--and one who's cultural stock was elevated because of Gould's advocation and artisitc realizations. The various sonatas for piano and brass instruments are a case in point. Beethoven dashed off a sonata for piano and French horn (his Op. 17); Brahms, of course, ripened the sonata for piano and clarinet; Saint-Saens wrote a nice sonata for piano and oboe; but who--of all people--would write a sonata for piano and tuba? Why, Hindemith, of course: he wrote at least one sonata for every instrument in the orchestra and piano. So, we have sonatas for trombone and piano, French horn and piano, et cetera. My only complaint is that on this recording the sonata for alto saxophone and piano is performed on an "alto horn." Alack, one can't have everything. As a bonus, Gould reads a little poetry on one of the tracks. In case you haven't heard his voice, it sounds exactly like a non-French Canadian. This brace of discs is well worth adding to any good collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb chamber music making!! August 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Like the wonderfully expressive Schumann Piano Quartet/Quintet recording with Julliard Qt, again Glenn Gould proves to be a superb partner in chamber music, this time with members of Philadelphia Brass Ensemble.

Each work is amazingly rich and original, you discover something new each time you listen to it. Gould's love for Hindemith's music is apparent, he gives inspired performances with clarity and intimacy.

Recorded in excellent stereo in 1975&76.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyrical precision February 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The recording of the Hindemith sonatas was a joy to listen to! Gilbert Johnson was my brass master class professor at the University of Miami, and the guy was a genius. His playing on the recording is beautifully precise and lyrical. He and Gould made the Hindemith sparkle with exuberance and Gould brought his unparalleled skills playing difficult contrapuntal parts to the table. He performed the brass accompaniments on the recording with the same zest and absolute masterly control as he did in solo recordings of the Goldberg Variations and the Art of the Fugue. Mason Jones played the horn sonata with a beautiful dark horn sound that pulled me into its core. All these gifted principals from the heyday of the Philadelphia Orchestra brought their considerable talent to the recording studio and made this rare recording a must-have for any serious musician, particularly pianists and brass players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gould and Hindemith February 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was the second Hindemith I have hear. The first was the Gould version of his 3 piano sonatas. The music was beautiful and it has made me look for and purchase other Hindemith played by Gould.
