Synopsis

Album Description
Ondine is proud to announce the first-ever commercial recording of a long-lost major work by Paul Hindemith, the Klaviermusik mit Orchester op. 29 for piano left-hand and orchestra. The New York Times has called it "a fantastic work that requires tremendous technique and stamina." Hindemith wrote this concerto for the one-armed pianist Paul Wittgenstein in 1923. Wittgenstein never performed it, and it was only upon the death of his widow, in 2002, that the piece was discovered in a farmhouse in Pennsylvania; the work received an acclaimed 2004 world premiere in Berlin, with piano legend Leon Fleisher as soloist and the Berlin Philharmonic under Sir Simon Rattle. Christoph Eschenbach, one of today's leading conductors, here directs the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, an orchestra the Philadelphia Inquirer acclaimed, "that any city would be lucky to have as its professional ensemble." This recording also features another orchestral gem, Antonín Dvorák's popular Symphony No. 9 ("From the New World").
