As a Hindemith completist, I bought this CD for the "lost" piano concerto. It is a well performed piece from his earlier dissonant period, showing hints of his sweeping mature works to come in the 1930's through the early 1950's.

The Dvorak New World Symphony is a real shocker! Eschenbach "does everything wrong", and it turns out great! Defying the traditional grand "Western European" approach to this piece (definitively rendered by George Szell and Bruno Walter), Eschenbach gives us a gentler, more pastel, and most AMERICAN interpretation (it WAS written here). I've played it for friends who are similarly surprised and impressed. Only occasionally does the definition get a little muddy (as if the conductor couldn't make up his mind whether the strings or the woodwinds should come to the front), and I've heard better brass.

Nonetheless, conducting essentially a student orchestra, Eschenbach renders a fresh and winning interpretation of this old standard. This is the twentieth recording of this piece in my collection, and it ranks very near the top!

PIANO CONCERTO FOR LEFT HAND (1923) by Paul Hindemith has four movements, lasting 2 minutes and 30 seconds, 3 min 10 sec, 6 min 43 sec, and 5 min 37 sec, respectively. The disc comes with a 30-page booklet. The front and rear covers feature color photographs of the conductor and pianist, with members of the orchestra surrounding the two gentlemen. Pages 6-9 have a biography of Mr. Hindemith, while pages 10-12 provide a bio of Antonin Dvorak. Then, there is a 1-page bio for each of Christoph Eschenbach (conductor) and of Leon Fleisher (pianist), which is followed by 7 pages on the Curtis Institute of Music and its orchestra.

FIRST MOVEMENT. From the first few bars, it is apparent that this is in the typical Hindemith style. This piece is not a stylistic outlier. On occasion, the first movement contains little motifs that sound like parts of MATHIS DER MALER, Hindemith's best known composition. The first movement has a moderate pace. On occasion, the piano is part of the team and, on occasion, the piano is the dominant instrument. What is unique is that the piano's bassline arpeggio (during the times that the piano plays a bassline arpeggio) sounds like the piano music from "film noire" spy movies or detective movies from the 1950s.

SECOND MOVEMENT. The second movement begins with a percussive effect, namely, a tapped wooden block. The wooden block is played at 1 second into the piece, at 10 sec, at 1 min 20 sec, at 1 min 50 sec (at this point a piccolo chimes in), at 2 min 20 sec, at 2 min 30 sc, and at 3 minutes. The second movement sounds vaguely like the "Shrovetide Fair Russian Dance" movement of Stravinsky's Petrushka, where the music consists of pulsing swarms of optimistic tunefulness. The second movement contains the following theme, provided by the brass.
