ArtistsSeattle Symphony Orchestra
A series of powerful, largely radical works in the early 1920s saw Hindemith established as Germany’s leading young composer. In 1936 he was asked by choreographer and dancer Léonide Massine to collaborate on a ballet project and Hindemith proposed scenes from the life of St Francis of Assisi.
The resulting ballet, Nobilissima Visione (The Noblest Vision), is a work of lyricism, elegy and majesty. This is the first recording of the complete ballet score, not the three-movement concert suite that Hindemith later extracted.
The Five Pieces for String Orchestra is an earlier, spirited work dating from 1927.
Internationally recognised for his moving performances, innovative programming and extensive catalogue of recordings, American conductor Gerard Schwarz serves as music director of the All-Star Orchestra, music director of the Eastern Music Festival in North Carolina and Jack Benaroya conductor laureate of the Seattle Symphony.
His considerable discography of nearly 350 releases showcases his collaborations with some of the world’s greatest orchestras, including Philadelphia Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic, London Symphony, Orchestre National de France and Seattle Symphony, among others. In his nearly five decades as a respected classical musician and conductor, Schwarz has received hundreds of honours and accolades, including Emmy Awards, Grammy nominations, ASCAP Awards and the Ditson Conductor’s Award.
